This is the question that comes to my mind. Which person in the church is supposed to possess the power to carry out the Great Commission? Is it just the preachers? Is it the Pope, the Bishops, the National and Foreign Missionaries? Yes they are to have the power, but YOU are also to be filled with the power if you are a born again Christian. It is you.

Powerful or Powerless?

Do you feel powerful today as a Christian, or do you feel powerless? We are at a point in the history of the world when the Church in my opinion is too silent concerning the events that's going on all over the world. I assure you that the issues that concerns all humanity should really concern the Church to a greater extent!

It has been said that the light that shines the farthest shines brightest at home. I know that Jesus Christ who is the head of the Christian Church, does not want us to be content until the Gospel has been preached to every creature. No one is to be overlooked an d every nation is to be informed. The Church, not the U.S. Government, is the to inform the world that the gospel has all the rules that humanity is to live by.

We are to teach the gospel to all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever He has commanded us. He has promised that He would be with us alway, not always, as some erroneously say, but alway meaning that there is never a moment in time that He will not be with His Church. Even unto the end of the Age.

That being said, This is the question that comes to my mind. Which person in the church is supposed to possess the power to carry out the Great Commission? Is it just the preachers? Is it the Pope, the Bishops, the National and Foreign Missionaries? Yes they are to have the power, but YOU are also to be filled with the power if you are a born again Christian. It is you.

Now where should you be spreading the gospel? It starts right where you are. In your home, your neighborhood and wherever you go. Even when you take your breaks on your job you can be a witness by just passing out a Christian Track to somebody or just invite them to attend your church with you.

You have the power. Just use it. The power that resides in you, believe it or not, is beyond human strength. You can't explain it, all you can do is obey and use it. Where does the power come from? From God. It is the Holy Ghost. God loves you and trust you with His power. Trust Him and use what He has given you!
