But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
No one can live the Christian life on their own abilities or strength of will. The only person who can live the Christian life is Jesus Christ. So, you would have to give up trying by yourself. You have to ask the Holy Spirit to live through you. As you do that, the power of the Spirit would fill you. Your mouth will overflow with praise. There is a power to witness that comes only from the Holy Spirit.
PRAYER: Holy Spirit, lead us to surrender our lives to you, and please empower us to be your witnesses.
