Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you”
Today’s Morsel: To empower someone is to give power or authority to; authorize, especially by legal or official means. Why do we need this Spiritual empowerment? Jesus said that because without Him we can do nothing (John 15:5). What should be some of the effects of this empowerment in our lives?
a) We should have the ability to walk in newness life (Romans 6:1-4)
b) We should not serve sin (Romans 6:6-12)
c) We should be controlled by love (1 John 4:7-11)
d) We should be salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16)
e) We walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh (Galatians 5:16-17,26-28)
f) We should be able to walk by faith and not by sight (Mark 6:8-9;2 Corinthians 5:7)
g) We should have a strong desire to see people saved (Acts 8:4-7; 16:8-10; Acts 16: 9-31)
h) We should have a desire for holy living (2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Peter 1:16)
Once we are born again, we have been empowered to preach the gospel to the whole world. We are now ambassadors for Christ.
Sing: There is power in the name of Jesus. There is power in the name of Jesus. There is power in the name of Jesus, to break every chain, to break every chain, to break every chain.
Thought For Today: “But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin” (Micah 3:8).
