Easter Thursday, April 4, 2012
Be alert to expressions of power of various kinds. There is the fullness of power in the presence of the Holy Spirit, imparted by the hands of Paul, and by articles of his clothing as well. There is the power of faith-filled persons who receive the Holy Spirit because of their openness to this gift.
Pride fills the noisy, arrogant mob in Ephesus. The Holy Spirit sweetly invades the ancient temple of Artemis. The power of Jesus before the demons in the Gospels is now at work in the church, the new temple of God’s enduring presence in the world.
Reflect upon the areas of your life where you sense power at work. The greatest power in you is the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ, the Messiah 18:28
Holy Spirit: come on me. 19:6
Handkerchiefs: diseases leave 19:12
Praising the name of Jesus 19:17
