For belivers in Jesus to be empowered by the fire of the Holy Spirit in their lives to do great things for his glory.

The Spirit of Power, Love and Self-Control.

2 Timothy 1:7.

Here are three key attributes of the Holy Spirit within us, power, love and self-control. Power draws on our ability, strength and work that Jesus has assigned for us to do. Love is one of the keys to being a Christian believer, but without it being applied on a daily base’s it has no value. Self-control could be called discipline, but that is not enough. Because it is not a formula to follow, but has to be set in the mind as a changed attitude.

There is an old Sankey redemptional  chorus which goes ‘There is power, power, wonder working power in the blood of the lamb.‘ That power is within all of us who believe, but we have to apply it daily for it really to work.
