Power to change

Acts 8:14-25

Peter and John placed their hands on believers and the Holy Spirit came into their lives (v.17). Sometimes the believers would start speaking in strange languages (Acts 2:4). It wasn't magic, but Simon thought it was (v. 18, 19) and tried to buy some to impress people with (v. 19). He just wanted power.

The power of the Holy Spirit isn't for impressing people. You can't earn it, buy it or just get it by being in the right place at the right time. You see . . .

  • God gives the Holy Spirit to every Christian
  • The Holy Spirit gives you a gift or gifts according to what he thinks is best for you and your church.

Lord, if I ask for power to make me a better Christian, let it be because I want to please you and help other people, not because I want to be a show-off.
