The Promised Spirit
“And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.” Luke 24:49 (ESV)
Without the promised Holy Spirit, sent at Pentecost by the Father, we are powerless to be the church. We are to be clothed with the power of the Holy Spirit, not our own spiritual fashions, but by His Spirit. When we are clothed by the Holy Spirit our own nakedness, the lack of His fruit, is covered.
Sometimes we think we are ready to do a thing for God’s glory, but before we move in that directions we need to stay put in prayer. We need to wait on God’s Spirit to empower us so we speak His words and do His will.
Let’s pray today that we may walk in the Spirit of God in all we do.
