The Need to be Filled with the Spirit

Luke 4:1-19

In Luke 3:21, 22, the Holy Ghost came down upon Jesus from heaven in bodily shape as a dove. Subsequently, Jesus, being filled with the Spirit, was led of the Spirit, wielded the sword of the Spirit against the devil, returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee where He entered the synagogue and read the passage, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel...."

If the Spirit of God was so active and prevalent in the ministry of Christ, if He depended on the Spirit to this extent, how can we hope to minister any other way than under the anointing of the Spirit of the Lord?

The arm of flesh will fail you, ye dare not trust your own. In the flesh we accomplish nothing of eternal value. But the Spirit gives us power and produces love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance. Get filled with the Spirit and live a supernatural life today.
