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.”

See, very many people have received the power Jesus talked about in this verse of the scripture, but not many people know how this power should function in them. The first idea people have when they hear power is; to raise the dead, and command the "supernatural".

While those are good and very important, they are not necessarily the first manifestation of power that a Christian should have. Jesus said that we shall receive power, and we shall be His witnesses. This means that when we received power, it was first for us to become witnesses of the work and victory of Jesus Christ. 

Now it's important to note that this is not just referring to telling people about Christ, no! That's a part of it, but Jesus said we shall be witnesses of Him in our worlds. This means that with or without telling people about Christ by word, our lives should bear witness of the presence of Christ. Our lives should testify of Jesus Christ.

So the power to witness was not just power to tell about Christ, but was power to live for Christ, such that our lives will be a true expression of the Word of God. The power of God must work in us and on us first, pruning us to live in obedience to the Word. This is actually primarily essential before we seek to manifest power in other things. Allow the power of God to bring your life to obedience before you seek to command obedience by the power of God. You're blessed. -TCF
