For the Christian to accomplish any thing for the glory of the Lord, and not for the glory, or boasting of one’s own self; and/or ego; it must be done by the Spirit of God in us.

It is GOD who gets things done.  It is God who saves a soul.  It is God who opens eyes to His revelation.  It is God who gives understanding and wisdom in the ministry of His Word.  How did Jesus live?

“And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of Him through all the region round about. And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.” Luke 4:14-15 (KJV)

Following His baptism Jesus was led of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tested (Matthew 4:1-11;  Luke 4:1-13).  He then proceeded to go to the synagogues teaching and preaching the Word of the Lord; which by the way was the Old Testament.  There was no New Testament written at that time.  He taught them things concerning Himself (Luke 24:27).

In everything Jesus did or said; He did so by the leadership and power of the Holy Spirit of God.  He did not move from one place to the other, except by the Spirit.  He did not speak a word, except by the Spirit.  He did not do any healing without the Spirit of God upon Him.

Hear what Paul the apostle says of the Spirit of God and the Christian,

“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” Galations 5:16

“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” Galations 5:25

This is living as Jesus lived.  It is impossible without the Spirit of God in Christ Jesus.  Walk in the Spirit; and we will have the Power of the Spirit.
