Luke Chapter 4

Jesus started the ministry under the power
of Spirit. Before he was surrounded by
disciples, before he went into the temple,
before he did miracles, he was filled with
power of spirit. The Spirit of God was with
him and until the last moment he was on earth.
The Holy Spirit was essitenial part of his
ministry and was working in the background
throughout his ministry. We can say, that
it wasn’t just Jesus and 12 disciples, but
the Spirit of God was very involved.

For a successfuly ministry it requires
infilling of the holy spirit and the power,
its involvement.

Jesus was always in sync with the Holy Spirit
and was led by the spirit. Jesus never did anything
apart from the spirit,spirit was always with him.
He went where the spirit lead him.

In Acts 1:8 it mentions the power will come
first and then holy Ghost, which will sent
the anionted to be witness of Jesus Christ
around the world.

Application

can make a difference in the our lives.
Instead of waiting for the church service
or certin time in the day, if we are able seek
the power of spirit early and at the beginning, then
everything else will be fine.
