Power to Serve

Did you know everyone who has the Holy Spirit resident within is anointed by God? The anointing in the New Covenant is the Holy Spirit. It’s not some superpower for only certain people. The evidence of the Holy Spirit in people is the fruit of the spirit they produce, whether seasonal fruits or perpetual fruits.

Did you know the Holy Spirit dwelling in you is the power of God in you? You don’t have to earn it, you have to learn it. It’s like being given a computer, it’s all in there, but it takes time to learn all that the computer can do. Reading the Word of God informs you about Who is in you and activates the power you’ve been given to serve others. It’s not that you lack power, it’s that you may not have yet learned the power you have resident in you.

Twisted dominion manifests in oppression of others, controlling others, lording over others. Biblical dominion serves others. You have been given dominion to be a servant. Exercise your dominion by letting that car get in front of you; by doing the dishes without being told; by holding the door for the person behind you; by forgiving the one who wronged you; by apologizing to the one you snapped at; and the list goes on from simple to challenging.

You, just like Jesus are anointed with the Holy Spirit to do. The Holy Spirit is an abundance of resources for you to be a servant. This is what love looks like and this will change the world.

Acts 10:38 “You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”
