If Jesus needed this, I sure do!

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil, for God was with Him. Acts 10:38. I love that all. Yes, please, Lord!

I think that's about the most amazing thing I ever realized in the whole Bible--even Jesus didn't do anything except by the power of the Holy Spirit.

If jesus, Himself, needed that anointing, well, I sure do.

And here's a wonderful passage that shows the whole Trinity and God's work in us: Ephesians 3:16-21 (New International Version, ©2010)

16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
