PENTECOST – LIVING DAILY IN THE POWER OF CHRIST
by Eddie Lawrence (This message can be heard in audio form here.)

With Pentecost Sunday coming up (I’m writing this the week before pentecost Sunday), I thought it beneficial to share with you the main points of the message I am working on.

TEXT: Acts 2

1. A PROPHECY FULFILLED

-Share how this fulfilled the underlying message of the feast of weeks in the Old Testament, the picture of harvest and bringing forth fruit.
-Share how it fulfilled Joel’s prophecy of how God would pour out His Spirit on all flesh.
-Share how it ushered in the new age of the Spirit and grace and left behind the age of law and judgment.

2. A PROMISE KEPT

-Share how the Holy Spirit is referred to as the promise of the Father.
-This is a gift for all those who believe regardless of ethnicity or gender.
-Encourage people to see the God is a promise keeper and He gives them His Holy Spirit.

3. A POWER RELEASED

-Share what Jesus taught in Acts 1:8

-John 14 – 16 that they would continue his ministry on earth through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
-Share a story of how the Holy Spirit led you to witness to someone.
-Share a story of His guidance in your life.

4. A PERSONAL ENCOUNTER

-Share with them that the power of the Holy Spirit is for them not just the preachers.
-Ask if they have had a personal encounter with the power of the Holy Spirit.
-They question is not have you been filled but are you presently full of the Spirit.
-Lead people to ask the Holy Spirit to fill them and immerse them with His power.
-Encourage them to open their hearts to all the Holy Spirit brings to us, His power, His fruit, and His gifts. Do not quench or grieve Him, He is God’s gift to you. He is God living in power in your life.
-Don’t look for a manisfestation but for Him, but neither quench how He may desire to manifest in your life.

5. A PRESENCE ESTABLISHED

-Share how through the indwelling and empowering of the Holy Spirit, the Church is now the body of Christ in the Earth. The world should look at the Church and see Jesus. The Church is to continue to works of Jesus in touching a hurting lost world.

-Ask people how well are they manifesting Christ? His love? His power? What have you seen Christ do through you that is unmistakably Him?
-Ask people to submit themselves more fully to the infilling and empowering of the Holy Spirit.
-Jesus said if we give good gifts to our children, how much more will the Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask…………
