Empowered by the Holy Spirit to Proclaim the Gospel

Empowered by the Holy Spirit to Proclaim the Gospel

“Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.” - John 16:7

Church Life:

As a church, we are called to proclaim the Gospel boldly and effectively. Each member has a unique role to play in this mission. The Holy Spirit empowers us to share our faith, whether through direct evangelism, supporting church outreach programs, or simply living out the Gospel in our daily lives. Consider how you can contribute to the church’s evangelistic efforts. Join community outreach initiatives, participate in mission trips, or support those who do through prayer and resources.

Personal Application:

In your personal life, seek opportunities to share the Gospel with friends, family, and colleagues. Pray for the Holy Spirit to fill you with boldness and wisdom. Remember that the same Spirit who empowered the early disciples is with you, enabling you to be an effective witness for Christ. Reflect on your unique gifts and how you can use them to further God’s kingdom.


Reflect on how the Holy Spirit has empowered you in the past to share your faith. Are there specific people or groups that God is calling you to reach out to? How can you rely more on the Holy Spirit for boldness and wisdom in proclaiming the Gospel? Consider the impact your individual contributions can have on the overall mission of the church.


Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to empower us. Help us to be bold witnesses for Christ, sharing the Gospel with those around us. Fill us with Your Spirit, giving us the words and courage we need. May our individual contributions come together to make a significant impact for Your kingdom. In Jesus' name, Amen.
