Power Hitters

Acts 1:8 NLT - “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Acts 13:47 NIV - For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “ ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.  

You will not bat .1000 (spiritually-speaking), but you can still serve on God’s team with excellence that edifies - with excellence that encourages - with excellence that evangelizes.  Excellence produces wins.  How might God expect you to use the power He provides you to serve His team and unchurched people with more excellence?  Do you serve God and His mission with the same level of excellence as you do your job, your schooling, or your home?  How excellently are you shining the light of salvation in your corner of this spiritually dark world?  How can you approach each Sunday worship gathering, small group meetings, and other area of Christian service with more empowered excellence?
