Plugging In

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. Romans 8:11 The greatest release of power on earth was not a hurricane or tornado; not the launch of a rocket nor the massive explosion of a nuclear bomb. The greatest release of power was the energy of the Spirit of God…
