Everyone is Commissioned By the Spirit (3 of 5)
Series: Becoming an Everyone Person
Introduction: We must be prepared and be ready to share the gospel when the opportunity arises. When the door opens, we must step through it. The Holy Spirit is the helper God has given us. He is our partner as we do kingdom work and move out into the ministry to people we all desire to have. This helper will equip us and is ready to flow through us at all times. He is the power we need to do the works of God. God has come upon us to fill us and equip us to do His mighty works and speak to people His mighty words. God has chosen you to be His mouthpiece . He will give you the ability to speak to people (Exodus 4:10) even if you feel like Moses who did not believe he could speak. God says, "I will be with you and I will use you."

The Greek word for witness is the same word that our English word "martyr" comes from. To be witnesses requires death to self, death to the things that hinder the Holy Spirit (pride, selfishness, anger).
