The Power of One

Acts 1:8

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

               Our mighty God is a dynamo, a source of unfathomable and unlimited power.  He is the power plant of the universe, of all creation.  Out of Him all of the power of life and being flows for every creature both small and great, rather heavenly or earthly.  God is the source and the continued supply of power and life for all that was, is and is to come.  While all of creation benefits from the outflow of God’s power and life, not all are privileged to be partakers and part of His transmission and distribution of power family.  We have come into the family of this power by faith and trust in the power and salvation of God through His Son Jesus Christ.  We a part of the grid and the network of His life and power throughout the earth.  It is His power flowing through us to live godly lives to His glory that illuminates the world around us and dispels the darkness and ignorance that fills unregenerate man.  When the Holy Spirit has come upon you, empowered you and has residence in you, you, by virtue of His Life in you, become a shoot and a branch of what He is.  You are connected to the network of God’s life and power in Christ.  The unique thing about God’s power is that its objective is not to dominate, but to serve.  We all enjoy the benefits of electricity in many aspects of our daily lives.  We all know that by mishandling electricity it has the power to severely hurt and even kill us.  Yet, when we turn on a light or open our refrigerator we don’t do so out of fear, because the manifestation of that power that operates those things has been harnessed and designed in such a way to serve us and enhance our quality of life.  God has designed us, His sons and daughters, to operate the same way and to manifest the life of God in our unique ways and with our different giftings.  We are not only for the benefit of mankind and our world, but one another as well.  In order for us to function to the capacity that God created us we must be plugged in and in constant fellowship with our power and life.  With that power God has freely given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. 

               Today, as you live your life, live out of the power of the One in which you have placed your trust.  Let your light so shine before men that they may truly see the face of the Father in you.  You are the light of the world, so shine brightly, consistently and stay plugged into your source of life and power.
