Power of the Holy Spirit

I wanted to give an update on our bible study on Not a fan.

I have to tell you this book really asks hard questions.  Questions we probably don't like to be asked if we are honest with ourselves.  

Sometimes it's good to be asked hard questions because it gives us the opportunity to improve ourselves.

This week the chapter revolved around the Holy Spirit.

I don't know about you, but when I was growing up I didn't really hear that much about the Holy Spirit.

It was more of a mystery.

But while we may not have a huge understanding of what it entails, Jesus does tell us that when he is gone he is sending one greater than himself that we can do even better things than he did.  

That is hard to imagine for me, that while the disciples had Jesus here on earth with him, he said with the power of the Holy Spirit we could do even greater things than he.


I don't know about you but some days I have a difficult time doing the simplest of things, to think that I have the power to do miracles seems totally surreal.

But that is exactly what the bible tells us, that if we believe, and call on the Holy Spirit (with a sincere heart), we cannot imagine the power that we have.

I don't think we have a clue of what power we have as followers of Christ.   

The question is do we believe it?  Really?  

If we do believe it, then do the actions of our lives reflect it?
