Reliance on the Holy Spirit.
Wednesday, April 18, 2012
This reliance on the Holy Spirit is imperative because the Christian life is a Divine design that cannot be undertaken with human power.
1] Fellowship with God the Father and The Lord Jesus Christ.
2] A life of fruit bearing.
3] A life of service bringing glory to God.
There are three kinds of Christians:
The hot, the cold and the lukewarm.
To be “filled with the Spirit” means to be constantly controlled by the Spirit in our mind, emotions, and will.
The filling of the Holy Spirit is a repeated experience.
We constantly need to be filled with spiritual power if we are to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord.
1] Allows Christ to dwell in our hearts
2] Helps us to understand doctrine.
3] Teaches us to know the love of Christ and to be grounded in that love.
1.] He was humble.
2.] He came to serve.
3.] He was obedient.
4.] He was willing to die for us.
1] Give doctrine top priority or not.
2] Perceive and metabolize the Word of God or not.
3] Be filled with the Holy Spirit or not.
4] Apply the ten PSDs or not
