On the first Saturday of every month, the Calvary Temple Young Adults gather together for a Bible teaching.
This week, Pastor Jon Miller taught about the importance of being filled with the Spirit of God to be ambassadors for Christ. He started the teaching with reminding us that we are the children of God, we are the heirs and joint heirs with Christ Jesus.
We turned to John chapter 4 to look at the verse where Jesus told his disciples, But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” (John 4:32 ESV) Through this passage, Pastor Jon encouraged us with the principle, Without God you will not have love for souls.
Pastor Jon gave a list of three things that God gave to this earth to get his gospel into the hearts of unbelievers –
God so loved the world that he gave:
1. Gave his only son (John 3:16)
2. God gave the church, the extension of God’s power in this world (Luke 24:47-49)
3. God gave His Holy Spirit (Acts 1:5, 8/ Acts 2:17)
Pastor Jon stressed through the teaching that we need the power of the Holy Spirit to affect lost souls. We cannot have religion and programs without the Holy Spirit and expect to impact our community for Christ.
Pastor Jon continued with the point that we as the church of Jesus Christ are the physical representation of Jesus on this earth. The challenge to you, today is: are you representing Jesus in your daily living?
This starts with being filled with the Holy Spirit and taking the message of the gospel into a lost and dying world. If you don’t have that power today, God promised that he would pour out his Spirit on all men. There is a fountain available for you to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
