The Power Source

Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized ?in the name of Jesus Christ.? And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off-for all whom the Lord our God will call. --ACTS 2:38?39

Approximately two thousand years ago, Peter and the other apostles proclaimed the truth that is at the very heart of the lighthouse ministries. The gift and ministry of the Holy Spirit is the most important truth any believer can receive.

The great evangelist Dwight L. Moody knew this well. "One day in New York-what a day!" he once declared. "I can't describe it. I seldom refer to it. It was almost too sacred to name. I can only say God revealed Himself to me. I had such an experience of love that I had to ask Him to stay His hand.

"I went to preaching again. The sermons were no different. I did not present any new truth. Yet hundreds were converted. I would not go back where I was before that blessed experience if you would give me Glasgow."

The Holy Spirit is the key to revival and awakening because He is the key to supernatural living. Apart from living in the fullness of the Spirit, the believer has no power to introduce others to Christ. The Holy Spirit is convicting many Christians of their lethargy, their cold-ness of heart, their unbelief, the loss of their first love. A spiritual explosion is spreading the Good News of Christ far and wide throughout the world. There is a resurgence in evangelism unparalleled in church history, as we endeavor-in the power of the Holy Spirit-to help fulfill the Great Commission.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, lighthouses for Christ are beaming the greatest of all news not only to their neighbors, but also to "all who are far off."
