In our country there are power lines that cross the landscape. They are high up in the air. So high that only a bird can reach out and touch its cables. A good thing, because this power would kill anyone instantly.
God also has high power for us, but he did not leave it in heaven. He send it to earth, so that it could touch us and we could be transformed by it. That power came through the Holy Spirit and is called “the baptism in the Holy Spirit”. Jesus said about this to his disciples:
Luke 24:49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.
The disciples were first told to reach the nations, and then to stay in the city. How does that work? Well, they had to wait for power before they could go and reach out to others. God’s power is a power that is electric. It is a power that enables us to work miracles, to believe for the impossible, to speak other languages, to accomplish humanly impossible feats. It is a power not focussed on us, but on reaching out to others. Get this power, and you will never be the same.
