Yesterday, Jesus taught us how to pray. Today, he expands on that teaching:
Today’s question: Was Jesus demon-possessed or Spirit-led? You be the judge:
They brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see. All the people were astonished and said, “Could this be the Son of David?”
But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”
To me, there’s nothing more comforting than today’s words from Jesus:
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
Here’s VERSE #8. These were Jesus’ last words before leaving Earth. Pray through ’em. Memorize ’em. And then LIVE ’em.
You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8)
I will ask the Father and He will give you another counselor to be with you forever. (John 14:16)

The first step? It all starts with the ♥ lit up by the flame in the center. Before we even think about moving a muscle, we need to plug into our power source: the Holy Spirit.
The Bible tells us to “be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18). It’s the only way to live:
We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.
Yesterday we started a new series: JESUS ON …
We’ll be taking a look at what Jesus said about a variety of absolutely critical, life-altering subjects in his own words with a minimum of commentary from me.
We kicked things off yesterday with what Jesus said about God the Father. Today’s topic? JESUS ON THE HOLY SPIRIT.
