But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you…
When I was young I really enjoyed those old monster movies, like Frankenstein. To bring life to the monster, the doctor had to wait for an intense lightning storm. Once the electricity was flowing, he had to throw switch after switch to get that flow of life-giving power to the monster.
Our spiritual lives can be similar. To get the full life-sustaining power of the Holy Spirit, all of those switches need to be engaged. Many times sin in our lives causes some of the switches to remain in the off position, cutting off the full flow of the Holy Spirit’s influence over our lives. To experience all that God has to offer, He not only needs to be our Savior but the Lord over our lives as well. Allow God to work fully through you!
