“not enough fire” #acontrolledburn
“Our lives are meant to be characterized by a controlled burn.”
I firmly believe that this is going to be a pivotal series in the history of our church as well as for other churches. And I am so excited to learn and grow in this area, and to grow in my own dependence on the Spirit in my soul and in my daily life.
“We’re meant to be so dependent on the Holy Spirit that it would be like our oxygen is taken away if He was taken from us.”
The subject of the Holy Spirit can be a scary topic, and as my husband preached this weekend, we don’t want to only be guilty of the abuse of the Spirit but also of neglect, and pretending like He’s not even there. We want to “find the balance of what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit, and stay on the course and stay in the saddle.”
“A Christian is a person in whom the Holy Spirit dwells and makes His home.”
One of my favorite points was the last one: “The Problem isn’t the Supply, it’s the Demand” – it’s not that there isn’t enough of the Spirit to be given out, it’s our asking to be filled and used by Him that is the issue. He wants to give and do MUCH MORE!
“We can’t do anything eternally significant or meaningful on our own. We need to be lit up by the Holy Spirit to live.”
Catch this message “Not Enough Fire” and be sure to tune in to the series as I know it will bring so much depth and growth in your walk with Jesus! Have a great week as you allow God to work these truths into your everyday living!
