That terminology has stuck with me all day. As believers we receive power as an asset from the Holy Spirit. Jesus told the 12 they were to wait for that asset, Luke 24:49 and Acts 1:8. Another asset we have is the Gospel. Paul calls it the power of God, Romans 1:16. Still another is the Word of God, 1 Corinthians 5:18 and Ephesians 6:17. The last asset I think of is one another, the passage that demonstrates this most clearly to me is Colossians 3:9 – 16.
It occurs to me as I think about this that ofttimes I engage in life or “endeavors for the Lord” without waiting for the proper assets.
