2. BUT You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you.
Jesus has given us BOTH the authority and the power.
You see from last week Jesus addressed the idea of authority and said He had been given all authority in heaven and on earth, and he was delegating that authority to us. (Matthew 28:18-20). This week Jesus is telling the disciples, that now they would have the power, but the power would not be from themselves or even for them per se,. the power would be from the Holy Spirit and enable them to do what God had in mind…
You may not look like much but if the Spirit of God can ever get a bit and bridle on your spirit, the world will be shocked at the transformation that takes place.
