      Because of man’s sinful nature, it is not normal for us to want to serve God and without the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, man’s plans will often fail whereas God’s will will always be accomplished.

      Because without the power of God working within us and for us we could never stand against Satan and the evils of this world. Satan is much more powerful that a human that does not have God in their life. The power God gives us through the Holy Spirit enables us to witness for Christ in many situations we would other wise never go in.

      The Holy Spirit is the power that helps us witness to Jesus. He gives us the words to say and the actions to perform to lead someone to Christ? There is many earthly influences that can create doubt in our minds. It is only through the power of the HOly Spirit that we can influence people for Jesus.

      Someone would need power to be a witness for Christ because Jesus literally tells his apostles “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 NIV. Christ followers are called to share the good news of Jesus Christ and share about His wonderful teachers. As one shares the good news of Jesus, the power of the Holy Spirit invades and gives strength to those living for Christ.

      When it comes to witnessing for Christ, on our own we are powerless from the attacks of the one who doesn’t want us witnessing for Jesus and the Holy Spirit not only protects us but also gives us the strength and power to advocate on Christs behalf.

      Lo Spirito Santo è essenziale per ricevere la vita di Cristo ed è lo Spirito Santo che fortifica nella testimonianza di Cristo.

      The power of the Holy Spirit is what you need for your life to be changed and transformed to the image of Christ. It allows you to be a witness and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Being a witness of Jesus Christ, is telling your own story how He saved you from your sins, healed you, gave you hope. Your testimony/story and save and unbeliever.

      We need to Holy Spirit to guide and direct us to say the right thing. To convey the message of Jesus at the right time. With the right attitude. If we go on our own will or we can push people away from the message. And from Jesus.

      Without the Holy Spirit, a person is only talking and communicating as a human instead of a witness for God. The Holy Spirit gives us the power that we need to be an effective witness for God.

      Some would need power because Jesus himself was powerful. The apostle Paul put it well when he reminds us in 2 Timothy 1:7 that “for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”

      A person would need power to be a witness for Christ because it is Christ’s work that is being done.

      This power is the Holy Spirit. Jesus speaks through the holy spirit to pass on the word of God through us.

      When speaking as a witness for Christ, we must allow the Holy Spirit to speak through us.
