The first Christians turned the world upside down (Acts 17:6) shaking the gates of hell even in the face of severe persecution. The result: People all around were filled with wonder and amazement (Acts 3:10).What can give Christians today the same impact?
God's Holy Spirit is ready to answer that for us in an awesome way, as Henry Blackaby and his son Mel Blackaby make clear in "Experiencing the Spirit." You ll see how the proof of the Spirit's presence is our awareness of God's personal assignments for us, plus our supernatural enablement to carry out those assignments.You ll find essential clarification on the difference between natural talents and spiritual gifts. You ll explore the dynamics of being filled with the Spirit through intimate relationship with Him, committed obedience, and radical departure from sin.
Instead of considering what you can do "for" God with your abilities and talents, you ll be encouraged here to seek what God wants to do "through" you supernaturally by His Spirit, empowering you beyond your personal competence and capacities. Release the Holy Spirit's work at the very core of your experience of the Christian life as He releases you to serve God as never before.
