MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU.

2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.
— Acts 2:2 NIV

Now lets be honest with each other, who has actually really tried to walk on water or move something with their mind with the power of the FORCE? I have!

You know, when you stare and hold out your hand and focus really hard to get something to move...or your swimming in summer and your like, this time im really going to walk on water!

Be honest, we have all tried it! So what is the force and how does it relate to us?

So whats the force in Star Wars?
"The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things."

So our force is the Holy Spirit, He is the one who gives us power!

All the gifts are produced by one and the same Spirit. He gives gifts to each person, just as he decides.
— 1 Cor 12:11

So what are the powers that we receive when we have the holy spirit?

• Wisdom
• Knowledge
• Faith
• Healing
• Miracles
• Prophecy
• Discernment
• Tongues
• Interpretation of Tongues

So, should we want the gifts of the Holy Spirit? YES!

Jesus wants us to have the gifts of the Holy Spirit and he also wants us to use them not just at youth but everywhere we go. If you haver the gift of Healing and you see someone with a broken arm then pray for them and believe that they will be healed.

So eagerly desire the gifts, if you don't have them ask God for them, if you have them ask God to grow in them and then use them to encourage and build people up and bring glory to Jesus!

Much Love,
