Sermon Topic: Holy Spirit
As we go deeper into the Art of Holiness, we want to consider our influences. Last week we discussed the unholy trinity of the world, the flesh, and the devil. This week we will look at how God’s character, real Christian community, and the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit can grow us in dynamic ways. In many ways, these are the three key influencers that mold us more deeply into the love and holiness of God. So join us as we come to know who God is and experience His grace through His people and His Holy Spirit.
We’ve been spending November talking about how to find joy in a pandemic-y world. What we’re finding is that joy IS possible, even when the world is conspiring against us, because biblical joy is not rooted in our circumstances but in the love of God. This week, we’ll explore the roots of joy and joylessness, as we celebrate the author of all joy.
A praying friend told me this week, "This is the Pentecost of Pentecosts!" He made that declaration as we talked together about so much spiritual movement that seems to be happening around the world. I mentioned some of what I'm seeing in last week's message. This week, we'll celebrate more Holy Spirit sightings as we talk together about the glorious gift of God's outpouring over the whole earth at Jesus' ascension. Be encouraged, friends! In the midst of hard things, there is a move! "See" you Sunday.
