Revere Beach



When exciting events happen and we are first hand witnesses then we become more dedicated. A successful mountain climb, or run down a ski slope gets us energized and we want to do it again. Suddenly we start working on technique, and working out so we can participate with better performance. Or even with tragic events, that take place like watching a loved one die of cancer or in accident because of a drunk driver. We, then, want to be part of a solution to solve the problem. We will work hard to find a cure to cancer by raising money for research or even going into science research to find the cure.  We will raise money for organizations like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D).  The trouble comes as time goes on and we begin to be discouraged because it does not seem that a cure is being found or that anyone is paying attention to drunk driving or that we just cannot seem to perform on the mountain the way we want.  The baptism in the Holy Spirit empowers us to continue on in building our relationship with God.  It is the Spirit of God who drives us to be more dedicated to God just as the memory of the success or tragedy acts as a reminder of why we do what we do to get better. The difference between the memory and the Holy Spirit is that a memory has no power to actually make us do better or hold us accountable.  The Holy Spirit does have the ability to both empower us with the ability to do better, and He will hold us accountable.

He intensifies this power and dedication which is exemplified in the ability for the church to speak and thousands of people experienced the new birth in Christ Jesus, reach out and heal the sick, cast demons out of people.
