Last week we said that 2) Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, needed Him (Holy Spirit):
2.2) For the revelation of the purpose of the empowerment which Prophet Isaiah articulated very well. Jesus affirmed that the verses in Isa 61:1-3 depict the essence of His ministry. They also describe the basic ministry He passed onto His church.
2.3) Jesus also needed the Holy Spirit for the outworking of the Father's will. ".. God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him."
3) The Early Church, Christians in Samaria, Christians in Ephesus and subsequent believers needed Him:
3.1) For ability, enablement and witnessing.
We need the Holy Spirit too just as the faith Generals (like Smith Wigglesworth and Charles Finney) who've gone before us needed Him.
CONFESSION - Father God, may I be empowered anew by Your Holy Spirit for, living, service and the outworkings of the Father's will in Jesus name, amen.
