Act 1:8-The Power of the Holy Spirit is real! (1)


The Holy Spirit is the driving force behind all committed Christians. And if truth be told, it is doubtful if we can achieve anything meaningful without Him. That’s why Jesus Christ laid emphasis on the need for the Holy Spirit to replace Him on earth (John 16:7) to make our lives easy to deal with.

The Holy Spirit made His debut in history on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4) and He assists humanity in many ways. For example, He guides us into all truth and tells us things to come (John 16:13). He also helps, teaches and reminds us all things (John 14:26). Besides, He is instrumental to our being able to speak with new tongues (Acts 2:4). A lot of people received the Holy Spirit via the laying of hands (Acts 8:17) but it worth’s being mentioned here, that the disciples received Him when Jesus breathed on them (John 20:22).

When the Holy Spirit descends on an individual, He confers on him or her immense power to carry out great exploits (Acts 1:8). Sadly, many people do not fall for this truth. To them, there is nothing exceptional about the Holy Spirit or at best, He is a mystery which has no role to play in today’s world therefore, He should be ignored. Well, I disagree with such people and I want to prove them wrong by demonstrating that the Holy Spirit is undeniably real, powerful and relevant in this era. I will now give some examples, out of the several things, that He is capable of assisting us to do and I will support each example, with a suitable testimony.
