PAUL PRAYS FOR US FROM PRISON
We heard Paul pray from prison for the Gentile Christians in Ephesians. He prayed that they would be strengthened by the Holy Spirit. We know Paul's prayer is for us, also. So, how are we like a flashlight? Well, when we believe in Jesus he sends his Holy Spirit to dwell in us. It's sort of like how a battery can make a flashlight come to life. But just because the battery is there, doesn't mean the light comes on. What has to happen? We have to turn it on. So after we receive the Holy Spirit, we must let our light shine by our words and actions every day.
