This sermon shows the difference between the gift of salvation and the promise of the Father. 1 Cor. 1:24 Christ= wisdom/power of God. Jesus grew in wisdom and favor with God and man for 30 yrs. His life was noticeably different after He was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then He moved in power and ministry! Everything changed for Him. When you were born of the Spirit it was the gifting of God, unction (1 Jn. 2:20,27) and God’s Spirit lives in you to accomplish His will and purpose for your life individually. However, in Acts 1:4 we read about the promise of the Father. Acts 1:8 says “You shall receive power.” The Holy Ghost comes upon you and you are anointed with power to be a witness and do the work of the ministry. This is the outflow (river) resource of the inward source of God’s life that indwells you by His Spirit. Jesus preached His first sermon Luke 4:18 and religion no longer favored Him, they wanted to kill Him! Acts 10:38 was Jesus the man from Nazareth anointed by the Holy Ghost with power. If this power was necessary for Jesus I believe it is necessary for each one of us to be effective in ministry/anointing.
