Continuing from the “power at home theme;” if you have the power of the Holy Ghost in you somebody in your home ought to notice it first. Somebody in Jerusalem (Ref. Acts 1:8) ought to be able to see this power of God working in you. Very often when we receive the power of God, we want to impress the people in Samaria and the uttermost parts of the world, we want everybody else to know that we have the power of God in us and those in our home are wondering who is that masked man/woman because the family doesn’t see that same display of power at home.
They don’t see the love of God working in you at home; they don’t see the prayer life you talk about in the church at home. Your wife doesn’t see a husband loving his wife as Christ loved the church at home, or the husband doesn’t see the submissive wife at home that’s proclaimed in the church. The kids don’t see the interaction that Christian mothers and fathers talk about at church going on in the home. In other words, if we are going to proclaim that we have this power of God in us somebody in our home ought to see the change manifested first. (Ref. Act.1:8)
