Being filled with the Holy Spirit of God is one of the greatest privileges and responsibilities that we have. There is no way that we can do all that we want to do or should do as His children. He will and must do it through us. For 3 chapters He told us who we were. Now He tells us to relax and allow Him to live His life in and through us.
This is not something strange that is going to happen to you. Nor is it hard. It is the most natural thing that a child of God could ever allow God to do. You will love it as He takes control and you know that He is doing in and through you things that you never would have been able to do before. Enjoy His Word today!
Tonight we will have our monthly Q&A session. So get your questions ready. We will answer them in a very practical way for your life. Someone said that you come to church all the time and get answers to questions that you are not asking. Now you get to ask your questions at Vision once each month. Just be sure and get your questions to the fellows in the sound booth before the service tonight.
I would also like to take this opportunity now to ask you to pray for me as Betty and I leave for Peru tomorrow. Pray that God will speak through me as I yield to His Holy Spirit. Pray that He will give through me what the pastors and missionaries there need.
I love you guys more than you will ever know or understand. I am excited about what God is doing here at Vision. I really think that we are really becoming what He wants us to be. I have felt His power and moving more than ever recently and I praise Him for that.
Thank you so much. Welcome our guests with great warmth today!
Gratefully your pastor,
