Jesus expects His disciples to live the supernatural life He lived while He was on earth. He expects His life being lived through us today.
For this, He has given us the supernatural authority of His name, the supernatural power of His Spirit, and God's Words are life and spirit.
Today we read some verses spoken by Jesus on the our needs for the power of the Holy Spirit.
Luke 11:13 how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask ?
Luke 24:48-49 and you are My witnesses of these things. Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.
Acts 1:5 but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now .
Acts 1:8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
Acts 2:4 and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them the utterance.
2:6 And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused ...
2:14 but Peter standing up ..and said , ..
36 therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord abd Savior.

38 Peter said to them, " Repent, and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
