Please read Acts 6:5-6.
The laying on of hands has absolutely nothing to do with receiving power. It only means that these men are set aside for and were together in service.
Having said that, I want to get into the heart of the message:
FIVE BIBLE FILLINGS:
I. THE FILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Look again at verse 3 and Ephesians 5:18.
- He comforts in trouble.
- He empowers in service.
- He encourages and gives boldness.
II. THE FILLING OF WISDOM VERSE 3.
1 Corinthians 12:8, “For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;”
Luke 21:15, “For I will give you (Jesus) a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.”
