Freedom Through the Power of the Holy Spirit

There’s great freedom to be found through experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit. It is the anointed Christians that help to set the captives free from bondage. Jesus proclaimed that the Spirit of the Lord was upon him to proclaim freedom for the prisoners.

The Holy Spirit is the same as He was then and is still delivering the captives from bondage.

Luke 4:14
Then Jesus went back full of and under the power of the [Holy] Spirit into Galilee, and the fame of Him spread through the whole region round about.

What is your life like today, full or empty? Is the power of the Holy Spirit evident in your life? Later on in this chapter Jesus explains why the spirit of the Lord is on him, in verse 18 he says the following: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” God’s power working within us, is powerful, and is given to us for a purpose. So are you full or empty?

Prayer: Lord fill me with your love and the awesome power of your Holy Spirit. I want to see the captives set free today. Use me to bring glory to your kingdom.
