At the beginning of His ministry, Jesus Christ acknowledged that He was not operating in His own strength and power, that it was the Spirit of God at work in Him. In other words, every teaching, miracle, sign and wonder in Jesus’ ministry was by the unction and anointing of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is so important, that even today, though Jesus Christ is no longer physically present in the earth, He is still depending on the Holy Spirit to save, change and transform lives. Whatever Christ is doing in the Church today, He is only doing it by the Spirit. There’s nothing that Christ is going to do in your life without the Spirit.
SCRIPTURE READING: Luke 4:18-19 The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me the Anointed One, the Messiah] to preach the good news (the Gospel) to the poor; He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity], To proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I thank you because you have given me your Holy Spirit; to anoint me to do your will. In Jesus’ name, Amen
