God’s Message, God’s Power

By Pastor Glem Melo

Christ is telling us, “Everything went as planned and will continue to go as planned. I will use you to accomplish the final phase of the plan. Therefore, be clothed by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

To advance and fulfill the great commission, we need “power from on high” (Luke 24:49).  The good news is that, believer united to Christ by faith, you are already clothed with the power of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:13).  Ask Him to set you on fire for God, make you more and more like Jesus, and use you to lead others to Him. “[B]e filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18).

About Glem Melo

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) May God give you grace and peace.
