“For it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.” Mark 13:11
What a promise to claim before setting forth to preach the Gospel! It is the ministry of the Holy Spirit to present and reveal Christ. So that if it is He that speaks through me today, how fruitful will the ministry be!
The essentials are: Cleansing, Emptying, Filling with the Holy Spirit, Absolute Reliance upon Him for speaking, praying, and all service. Such reliance is vitally important if I am to be genuine when I preach Christ.
Then empty me, Lord. Cleanse me by Your precious blood. Now fill with me the Holy Spirit. I take the fullness, and thank You. Control me in all I do and say, that You might be glorified today. Amen. http://ow.ly/i/qY87R
