God has supplied each of us with more than enough to live victoriously for him and has a unique calling for YOU!

 

2 Tim. 3:15-17

[15] And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

[16] All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

[17] That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

 

Perfect- artios, Greek 739, Strong's

artios, ar'-tee-os; from Greek 737 (arti); fresh, i.e. (by implication) complete :- perfect.

 

 

Furnish-  exartizo, Greek 1822, Strong's

exartizo, ex-ar-tid'-zo; from Greek 1537 (ek) and a derivative of Greek 739 (artios); to finish out (time); figurative to equip fully (a teacher) :- accomplish, thoroughly furnish.

 

Acts 3:1-10

[1] Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.

[2] And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

[3] Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

[4] And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.

[5] And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

[6] Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

[7] And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ancle bones received strength.

[8] And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

[9] And all the people saw him walking and praising God:

[10] And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.

 

   

 

Acts 4:13

[13] Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

 

 

 

 

 

You will receive power to live for him and to over come sin.

Acts 1:8

[8] But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

 

   

 

He gives us the ministry to help teach and train us to become what we need to be. To open the word of God  and explain and to bring us into righteousness.

Ephes. 4:11

[11] And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

 

He will equip you with spiritual gifts according to your ability to sustain it.

1 Cor. 12:7-11

[7] But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

[8] For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

[9] To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; [10] To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

[11] But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

 

We've been supplied with a full supply of armor.

Ephes. 6:11-16

    Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. [12] For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. [13] Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. [14] Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; [15] And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; [16] Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.   

    [17]And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: [18] Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; [19] And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,   

 

We will manifest his presence within us when we have been perfected. 

Galatians 5:22-25

[22] But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

[23] Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

[24] And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

[25] If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

 

Comforter dwells in you if you are spirit filled.

John 14:17-18

[17] Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. [18] I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

 

In scripture there are those who were baptized before they received the Holy Ghost. In other circumstances, some were filled with the spirit, then were commanded to be baptized in the name of Jesus. Some had never even heard of the Holy Ghost until they had been baptized. Some folks when they are spirit filled receive the gift of tongues and interpretation. Others use the gift of prophecy, the gifts of healing and working of miracles. You may even know someone who operates with all nine gifts of the spirit. God gives to one 'severally as he will' the Bible says. We are different.

 

Even your mission field is different. The friends and family members you will be working with; your methods and mannerisms. But God has chosen YOU to reach them.

   

Jude 1:20-25

[20] But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

[21] Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

[22] And of some have compassion, making a difference:

[23] And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

[24] Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

[25] To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
