Being the Church- Part 3
Salt & Light Volume I, Issue 4 by D. Scott Prindle

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere- in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Luke 19:10

To be an effective witness in the Marketplace we need the power of God's Holy Spirit. What does it mean "when the Holy Spirit comes upon you?"

It means a Christian is filled with supernatural power so things happen that normally would not occur. You will be very aware of His power at work and it is evident to others as well.

They witness Christ in you, the hope of glory.

His Power at Work
It may be a "divine appointment" with a customer when you speak to their situation in life and they are ministered to. It may be you pray for someone who needs healing and God heals them.

It can even mean supernatural wisdom from above that transforms your business and impacts others for Christ.

At times it will mean persecution... those who oppose Christ will also oppose Christ in you. But where there is outward opposition, His power will give you an inward peace.

Be Spirit Filled
Ask God each day in prayer to fill you with His Spirit so you are His witness telling people about Jesus everywhere... especially in the marketplace where people spend most of their awake hours.

Next week we will see how God leads us at work.

Love Never Fails,
Scott & Laurie Prindle
