What Is Repentance?



Gipsy Smith: "If there is a man or woman who has been trying to live a Christian life and has no joy in it, and no victory in it, and no song in it - I know the reason. 

   It is that they have never repented. They have started wrong. (Google image, Sad person)

#10 The All-Essential Power

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: "You are witnesses . . . but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high" (Luke 24:48-49).

   This was said to a large group of the disciples by Jesus. The command is clear. We are not ready for Christian witness, service, or leadership until we are clothed with the promised power of the Spirit. (Google image, Jesus instructing His disciples).

#9 The Hand of the Lord Upon You


Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: "The Hand of the Lord" is a term frequently used in the Old Testament to express God's Spirit resting upon a person whether in grace or in power.

   When God gave Ezra the vision and burden for Jerusalem he went to Artaxerxes with his requests. He reports that the emperor "granted him everything he asked, for the hand of the LORD his God was on him (Ezra 7:6). (Google image, Living in God's power).

One Invitation at a Time


Debbie McEwen: How did I come to know Christ? How did I start on my walk with Him?

I was asked the other day how I got to the point that I know him so well that whether I live or die, it is for Him.

If I live I get to do His work. If I die, I spend eternity with Him in heaven. I win either way.

#8 The "UPON"ness of the Spirit



Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: This emphasis of the Spirit of the Lord coming upon God's chosen leaders is frequently mentioned in Bible history.

   "The Spirit of the LORD came upon" Othniel, and he became Israel's judge, went to war, and a forty-year peace resulted. Why could he overpower the enemy even though he had no trained army? Because of God's power upon him. (Google image, Bible Sampson).

#7 Do You Long for Power?



Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: It is natural for you as a Christian leader to long for God's power to rest upon you and be evident in your ministry.

   You have often longed for more power in prayer, in your speaking, and in your touch upon the lives of those to whom you minister. (Google image, Firey preacher
