"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 NLT
What does it mean to engage people?
It involves confronting, comforting, sharing and investing yourself in the lives of others: believers as well as non-believers. We are called to meet the needs of others; physically, emotionally and spiritually. The bottom line is to do what Jesus did. Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father."
...To live like Jesus
...To love like Jesus
...To lead others to do the same.
It's much easier to say than to do. In fact, it's impossible to do under your own power. That's why Jesus said, "you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you." It's by power of the Holy Spirit that's within you that you'll be able to engage people.
