Are You Depending on Your Own Strength to Follow Christ?

Fans eventually get burned out from trying to live the Christian life out of their own efforts.  If you are depending on your own strength to follow Christ you will soon find yourself drained and defeated.  Jesus promised his followers that the Spirit would come on them in power.

Followers of Jesus understand that it’s a journey they were never to make alone.  Instead we keep in step with the Spirit and he supernaturally gives us the strength and the power we need.
