A Verse for the Year

Zechariah 4:6  (ID: 3137)

Where should a Christian turn for the strength to participate in advancing God’s Kingdom today? Alistair Begg explores a familiar verse from the prophet Zechariah to show that only God’s Spirit can empower us to fulfill His purposes. As believers turn toward God and away from earthly concerns, we must be willing to be countercultural for the sake of His kingdom.


6Then he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.
