Super Powers

Jesus left the earth so that He could send His Spirit to the church – to give us power from Heaven (John 16:7, Luke 24:49). Just having super powers doesn’t make us super heroes, though. Most of our heroes and heroines are messed up people who have learned to maximize some strength.

Even many people who are believers, who have much revelation or faith or miracles have so much pride or anger or meanness or fear or jealousy that they are just carnal expressions of the power of the Spirit. Contrary to this, any manifestation of the power of the Spirit that is sanctified by the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) is a truer representation of Who the Spirit wants to be in the earth through us.

Even being moved to ministry by a love of the lost or of other believers will not make us able to walk in the level of heroism that doing all things out of love for Jesus will.

“This is the most important,” Jesus answered:

‘Listen, Israel! The Lord our God, the Lord is One. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’

The second is: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.”
