But the biggest transformation Jesus makes is in our relationship with God: God is no longer some abstract, unapproachable judge. He becomes our Father, our “abba” who delights in us, sings over us, and gives us access to His presence. So with transformed affection for God we find ourselves wanting to pray, delighting in praise and growing in thanks for all He has given us in Jesus. And as a result of this new affection, we find ourselves wanting to please Him in every way.

What manner was this power? How was it manifested in those first followers? It was the power of the Holy Spirit who moved them to thirst after the Word. It was the power of the Holy Spirit who moved them to seek God constantly in prayer. It was the power of the Holy Spirit who moved them to sell whatever they had so they could share with others in need. It was the power of the Holy Spirit who moved them to open up their homes and include friends and neighbors in their lives. It was the power of Christ’s love that compelled them to love one another deeply. And it was the power who moved in their hearts to tell the good news about Jesus, to talk about the cross.

If Jesus is big enough to throw off life’s greatest enemy, then Jesus can help you overcome any obstacle. Only Jesus can destroy any fear that’s holding you back. Only Jesus can defeat any sin that’s enslaving you. And Only Jesus can remove any hindrance that’s keeping you from bearing fruit for Him. So the next time you face an obstacle that seems impossible, bring it to Jesus, and wait. Let him work. He rose from the dead. He can raise you too.

Our place in God’s story begins here: God loves every person created in His image. And if God loves the broken, the lost, the lonely, the abused, the messed up and wacked out discards of this planet – then they too should matter to us. Part of our purpose as people created in the image of God is to begin seeing every person through God’s eyes… as someone made to know and love Him too.

What does it mean to live in this freedom? You no longer have to live in guilt. Your heart is clean. Christ has taken away every sin, every stain, every hurtful and shameful thing you have ever done. Your forgiveness has set you free from guilt and shame. You no longer have to be defined by your past. Your sin no longer defines you. Your past is a thing of the past.
