Much like last week, we’ve got another resource intended to help you in your journey along in the Unseen series!
This weekend, we spoke about the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives. There are a lot of roles that the Spirit plays; it draws our attention to Jesus, convicts us of sin, and empowers us with the ability to live a holy life, just to name a few. But the sad tragedy is that many of us have really neglected any study on the Holy Spirit. Some of us grew up with some really non-Biblical ideas about the role of the Spirit in our lives. Others of us grew up hearing about the Spirit from crazy preachers with slicked-back hair on a TV screen. Still others of us grew up in churches where the topic of the Holy Spirit was just completely avoided.
I’m really thankful and grateful for a church that took some time to tackle that topic this weekend! And to help you on your journey is a great book written by Francis Chan called Forgotten God. In the book, Chan invites us to take a look through the pages of Scripture and see what the Bible has to say about the Holy Spirit. He invites us to experience what it’s really like to experience the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives, and allow his freeing power to work in us to live a Christlike life that will cause the whole world to notice. It’s definitely a thought-provoking read, and I know that many of our community groups at Suncrest have even studied through this book and found it to be really helpful. It’s my hope that you will too if you’re looking to take a next step in this area!
