Change = The Holy Spirit

No one has the power and grace to live out God’s plan for our lives without the power of the Holy Spirit. If anyone is in Christ they are a new creation not just by the power of the cross but by indwelling work and power of the Holy Spirit. 

So don’t be afraid of the Holy Spirit changing you. Don’t be afraid of having real love come into your heart. Don’t be afraid of having real power. Don’t be afraid of having a sound mind. 

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, but of love and a sound mind. 

Many of us look at that scripture and find it hard to believe that God can give us power, love and a sound mind. What the scripture is saying is that the Holy Spirit is the spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. 

When you have the Holy Spirit living inside of you and allowing Him to lead and guide your life, then you will receive and become a person of power, love, and a sound mind. 

I don’t know about you but I need those three things in my life and so do you. 

I am fired up about Encounter tomorrow as we continue our current series with a talk titled Change = The Holy Spirit. I can’t wait to see you all at Encounter for a great dinner, an inspirational worship set with Mandie and the Encounter band, and a teaching on the Holy Spirit! 

Be Blessed and Encouraged
