In order to join a profession, one needs to attend a particular college for a set time and pass the exam so as to be accorded a certificate allowing them as practitioners in that field. Doctors attend medical school for 6 years, lawyers law school for four years and all the other professions. The profession of witnessing Christ is no different; one ought to be filled with the Spirit of God. You are not ready to witness Jesus until you have been filled with the Holy Spirit.
Furthermore, when the Holy Spirit who is now living in you comes upon you, what bible teachers call “the baptism of the Holy Spirit”, you receive power, boldness and all necessary tools to witness Jesus to the world. You need a touch from God. A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle but again it cannot light another if it has no fire. Get the fire; ask for the Holy Spirit. Let Him both fill and overshadow you. Until you work by His power, you are doing your own business not God’s. God’s business, God’s way and God’s power. Receive the Holy Spirit.
SCRIPTURE READING: Acts 10:38
Acts 1:8: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Luke 11:13: If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
Dear Heavenly father, fill me afresh with the Holy Spirit. Baptize me afresh with the Holy Spirit. Anoint me with power and let my horn run over in Jesus’ name, Amen.
