Jesus told His disciples to live in the power of the Spirit, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you…” (Acts 1:8). What follows that commandment in the Book of Acts is a movement, unlike anything the world had seen in which the disciples and followers of Jesus lived lives of explosive power and turned their world upside down. The church today can have the same “momentum” and the same impact that the early Christians had in their world. Is it still possible for us today?
Do join us for the ten (10) days of prayer and fasting leading to Pentecost – what it means to live life in the Holy Spirit. Each day there is a question to reflect on life application. We pray that you will discover what it looks like, on a practical level, to live in the power of the Spirit every day. Journey with us and watch the Holy Spirit move mightily in your life during this season of prayer and fasting.
