Empowered! How We Do What We Do

Acts 10:35, But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him. 36 The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ—He is Lord of all— 37 that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
The root of the word “empower” is “power” which is: ability to do or act; capability of doing or accomplishing something.
Power has to be gained, learned, imparted, or received from God and others. This is the basis of being empowered. The prefix “em-” or “en-” before an English word means, “in, into, within, inside”
Empowerment defined: The PROCESS of helping others obtain opportunities, develop skills, and gain self-sufficiency. “Empower” is an instance. Empowerment is the process.
Where would you be today without God and the people who empowered you?
Too many people and powers in life are only trying to extract something from you, not put anything into you.
