Empowered by the Spirit

Empowered by the Spirit

Pentecost marks the coming of the Holy Spirit to empower Jesus’ disciples to fulfill the commission He had given them. On that day, Peter and the disciples, commissioned by Jesus and anointed by the Holy Spirit, stepped into leadership roles in the newly formed and rapidly growing church. We are part of that church today, in part because they were willing to accept the leadership responsibilities given to them by God. How does believing that God has placed you in your present leadership roles change your perspective on how to lead today?

Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say.”—Acts 2:14

Prayer: God, You have placed us where You want us and given us responsibilities to fulfill on Your behalf. Give us the humility to serve like Jesus and the confidence that comes from Your Spirit. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
