|You cannot follow Christ as a disciple on your own. You need help. If you have accepted Christ and committed to following Him, you will still find yourself struggling at times with sin. To assist you in growing as a disciple, God has given you everything you need. That help comes in the person of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit was sent by Jesus to be with us as we live life as a disciple. As a Christian, you receive the Holy Spirit when you commit your life to Christ. You are then told to “be continually filled with the Holy Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18). Click here.
To tap into the power of the Holy Spirit, and to live each day directed by God and strengthened by God, prayer is the secret. Prayer allows us to draw near to God and produces the power we need to follow Christ as His disciple.
