You will receive this essential power to:
I. BE what God wants you to be

- His kind and obedient disciple
- His anointed and humbled witness
- His favoured and empowered ambassador

BE LIKE JESUS - Holy and True to the Father
II. DO what God wants you to do
- Trust Him for His best for your life
- Honor Him with your life and testimony
- Live for Him and others
- Represent Him well
- Shine for Him wherever you are or go
- Walk by faith and not in fear
- Believe Him for the miraculous, the supernatural, the unthinkable, the impossible in and through your life
The Holy Spirit will empower us to love God fully and serve Him gladly.
Being precedes Doing.
He has shown you, O man [mortal], what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy [kindness] and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)

I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high. (Luke 24:49)
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (Acts 2:4)
If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him! (Luke 11:13)
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17)
God will sift, shift, and lift up His church.
He will separate the real from the fake and phony.
