THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS UPON ME
TEXT: Luke 4:18; Isaiah 61:1 ;1 Peter 2:20 -22
Introduction- The topic of this study is taken from the prophesy of Isaiah, as read by Jesus Christ, in the synagogue, in Nazareth. The text spoke of the reason why, Jesus came. Jesus also fulfilled that mission. Luke 4:21. Jesus left us an example and wants us to follow in his steps.
C. How can we do the works, and greater works, than Jesus did? John 14 :12 -14.
1.All of us who believe in Jesus will continue his work John 14: 12a.This is not only to pastors, or highly spiritual and mature Christians.
- We will all do something greater than the works of Jesus, by the help of the Holy Spirit, which now dwells with us, after Jesus left
3.We can access this through prayer. John 14:13 -14
Jesus Christ did the works of his father because the Holy Spirit was upon him. We can do same, once the Holy Spirit dwells in us. This is normal Christian life.
- We need to submit our will to God’s will, so that God can accomplish his will through us and through his people.
Conclusion- We can do great works like Jesus Christ did, when we submit to the Holy Spirit
