 Christian Began As A Work Of The Spirit Of God


Christianity was birthed in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and will only continue as we have this empowering from above. When we look at Church history the only truly significant stories of men that influenced and built the kingdom of God were men who were filled with the Holy Spirit. This anointing is something that not only signifies leadership in the Church but also usability before God for His work.

Christianity in this way is quite simple, it is a work of the Spirit of God. This simplicity can offend men but God clearly states in 1 Corinthians 1 that He uses the weak, the unwise, the unlearned and the despised of this world.

It happened when God chose 12 disciples. Two wanted to send fire from heaven down on towns, three could not stay awake during a prayer meeting, one was a traitor and thief, and one betrayed Christ denying that he even knew the Lord.

They argued over who would be the greatest and all of them fled away when hard times came.

Yet with this group of weak, unlearned simple men God was building His Church against which the gates of hell will not prevail.

This can give us great consolation and hope to be usable in the work of the Lord for He is looking for those who are not self-seeking but rather are humble, weak and needy. They are the ones that are calling out to God for His Spirit because they literally need Him in every situation.
