BIBLE STUDY NOTES

08.08.2020 SPIRIT- EMPOWERED WITNESSING

And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness. Acts 4:31

 

When conversion occurs and we receive a new heart (the heart of God, from God), the Spirit of God pours out His agape’ love into our hearts (Romans 5:5). God’s motives become our motives: He so loved the world that He gave His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. The love of God in our hearts compels us to share the good news of God’s redemptive work for all mankind.

THOUGHT OF THE WEEK

I (God) am the ground of thy beseeching,

First, it is My will thou have it

And then I make thee to will it,

And then I make thee to beseech it,

And if thou beseech it,

How should it then be that thou should not have thy beseeching?

Lady Julian of Norwich
