Experiencing the Holy Spirit as Our Divine Enablement (3)

  • Every believer has been called into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
    God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful. 1 Cor 1:9
    1. It is this call of God, applied to us in the new birth, that is the foundation of all life and ministry and the source of all redemptive grace. 1 Cor 12:13; Eph 1:3; 1 Peter 1:3
    2. We are taught through this great act of God, that we no longer belong to ourselves, and also the priority of the spiritual over all other facets of life. 1 Cor 6:19,20; Matt 6:33
  • God’s call to us is based on His love, kindness, and redemptive grace.
    1. We must accept the truth of the Bible: God loves us and cares for us in spite of what has happened to us or is happening to us.
    2. He wants you. And His desire is for daily fellowship with you and for you to enter into a cooperative ministry with Him.
  • Why do I begin this message as I have?
    1. Because your life and ministry flows out of your heart experience with God more than your head.
    2. Because God wants you to know your provision for life and ministry is a Person: Jesus Christ Himself – through the ministry of the Blessed Holy Spirit. John 14:16
