After we have received Jesus Christ as Lord the next most important thing we can do to ensure success as a Christian is to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. You see it’s alright to get saved, but to get saved and not receive the gift of the Holy Ghost is like a cloud without rain on a dry day. It’s like having a pit-bull with no teeth. It’s like owning a gun for protection but having no bullets. Thus, to be saved and not have the Holy Ghost is to be a Christian with no power. And the power is important because in order to win in your own life or in your home or even in a community you are going to need some power. We know this is true because Jesus told his disciples before He ascended to his Father in (Acts 1:8) “But ye shall receive power, after the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and in Samaria, and unto all the uttermost parts of the earth.” With that said saints of God, let us receive the power that is already been here since the day of Pentecost but we have been lacking in our pursuit of this power. Let us receive (the believer) that which the Lord desires for us to have that we might be in a position to defeat the enemy not only in our own lives but in the lives of others.
God Bless You
