38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.

 

 

As we considered on Sunday this powerful verse about the ministry of Jesus is both inspiring and challenging. During His earthly ministry Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit and with Power. God was with Jesus and he went around doing good and healing all of those under the power of the devil. Jesus modelled for us a life with God lived out in human form. The inspiration is that through Jesus death and resurrection and the promised Holy Spirit baptism we too can be anointed with the Holy Spirit and with power. The challenge for us is Jesus did not only operate in His own divine power but being fully God and fully man he relied upon the anointing of the Holy Spirit and the presence of God! That is a great challenge indeed as it removes our excuses, we can’t simply say Jesus moved in healing, in salvation, in deliverance and in power because He is God. Jesus demonstrated humanity empowered by the Holy Spirit and the presence of God. His apostles then followed Him and demonstrated the same. How about us?

 

Jesus we pray that you would anoint us again with the Holy Spirit and with power, God we thank you for your presence with us and ask that you will inspire us to step up and step out in anointing and power to destroy the works of the enemy and demonstrate the goodness of God.

 

Amen
