Scripture: Acts 1:8 "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Encouragement: Our Lord made it clear that we can never become effective witnesses for Him in the world without the presence and help of the Holy Spirit. In fact, He stated in John 16:7 that it is profitable for us that He goes away so that the Comforter/Helper (Holy Spirit) can be sent to us. It is therefore important for us to understand the role of the Holy Spirit in our walk with God and continually seek His presence and help.
Prayer: Thank God the Father for the gift of His Spirit. Acknowledge your dependency on God and ask for the help of the Holy Spirit to live for Christ and to be an effective witness for Him.
