“I believe in the Holy Ghost” #acontrolledburn

“More than a creed, it’s something I bleed: I believe in the Holy Ghost.”


First of all, what a powerful weekend all across the state of Montana! Billings, Bozeman, Kalispell, Missoula, and Whitefish. God is working and moving, and it’s absolutely amazing that we get to be a part of this special work!

This weekend’s message was all about who the Holy Spirit is, and I love so much how my husband admitted his incapability of revealing who the Holy Spirit is, but how God is the only One who can, so he prayed that God would do just that, and God answered that prayer, to say the least.  For me, my eyes were even more opened to how He is involved in every step of salvation, how He is our comforter, and our helper, and our source of power.

In the second point “He is God” my husband referenced a message he preached in our Kickstart series about the Trinity, called, “We’re Going to Need a Bigger Bucket.”  Here is a link to it, if you’d like to catch it (which you totally should!).

“The Holy Spirit is God’s way of saying, ‘How can I help you?'”

As much as I want to write everything I was learning, I want to focus on his last point, that the Holy Spirit is our source of power.  We’re not alone in this life; but more than that, we don’t need to operate in our own strength! In fact, we can’t operate and function and serve and give in our own strength, because our strength fails.  But to have daily access to the same Holy Spirit who created the world, who wrote the Bible, who raised Jesus Christ from the dead?! He is the “uninterruptible power supply” that enables and empowers us in this Christian life and we run toward Heaven and seek to bring as many as we can with us – that those stranded in sin might find and life and liberty in Christ!

Listen to this message for yourself, and you will laugh (there were some crazy shenanigans this weekend!) and you will grow in your knowledge of who the Holy Spirit is!
