Then I heard what seemed to be a large crowd that sounded like a roaring flood and loud thunder all mixed together. They were saying,
“Praise the Lord! Our Lord God All-Powerful now rules as king. So we will be glad and happy and give him praise. The wedding day of the Lamb is here, and his bride is ready. She will be given a wedding dress made of pure and shining linen. This linen stands for the good things God's people have done.”
Then the angel told me, “Put this in writing. God will bless everyone who is invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb.” The angel also said, “These things God has said are true.”
I knelt at the feet of the angel and began to worship him. But the angel said, “Don't do that! I am a servant, just like you and everyone else who tells about Jesus. Don't worship anyone but God. Everyone who tells about Jesus does it by the power of the Spirit.”
If you have difficulty telling other people about Jesus it may be because you are trying tell about Jesus by your own human power and not the power of His Spirit! Proclaiming Jesus to the world around you without the Spirit’s power in your life is like standing in the ocean surf and trying to turn back the tide! You will fail and you will fail every time!
Sharing the Good News about Jesus is at the center of the Cosmic War that is raging and has been since the time of the fall of man! A man filled with the Holy Spirit and walking the way the Spirit leads will rock the world around him and send shock waves to the ends of the earth and beyond. But a man engaged in the battle against Satan with only his own human strength and wisdom will be pummeled by the forces of Hell!
Ask the Lord to show you today someone who needs to hear about Jesus and watch for His answer to that prayer as you walk through this day. When the Spirit convicts your heart that you are standing in front of that person, say something good about Jesus and see where the Spirit leads from there! You may not see the whole picture of what is happening, but you can rest assured that the Holy Spirit is working through you.
“Lord Jesus, show me today what it means to tell about You in the power of the Holy Spirit. And may You be praised forever. Amen!”
