God’s Message, God’s Power

By Pastor Glem Melo

Christ is telling us, “Everything went as planned and will continue to go as planned. I will use you to accomplish the final phase of the plan. Therefore, be clothed by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Westminster ElginTo advance and fulfill the great commission, we need “power from on high” (Luke 24:49).  The good news is that, believer united to Christ by faith, you are already clothed with the power of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:13).  Ask Him to set you on fire for God, make you more and more like Jesus, and use you to lead others to Him. “[B]e filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18).

God’s Message, God’s Power
Luke 24:46-49

  1. Jesus fulfilled God’s promise and plan of salvation.
  2. Jesus sends us to proclaim His message of salvation to all people.
  3. Jesus empowers us to proclaim His message of salvation to all people.

About New Hope

We are a community of people who believe in and live for Jesus Christ. We embrace and proclaim the Gospel as taught in the Bible and explained in the teachings of the Reformation: Salvation is by grace alone (sola gratia) because of Jesus Christ alone (solus Christus), received through faith alone (sola fide), based on the teachings of the Bible alone (sola scriptura), all for the glory of God alone (soli Deo gloria). SALVATION IS BY GRACE ALONE, THROUGH FAITH ALONE, BECAUSE OF JESUS CHRIST ALONE, BASED ON THE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE ALONE, ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD ALONE.
