"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom" (2 Cor 3:17). The Lord brings freedom into our lives, freedom from the penalty of sin, freedom from the power of sin, and freedom into the wonderful joy and peace of the Lord. This morning I am preaching a message that God has placed on my heart on the Spirit of God - perhaps it is for you. What is your relationship with the Spirit like today? Often among Christians the topic of the Holy Spirit brings a lot of debate. We often spend a lot of our energy just trying to identify and defend our own position - and I believe it is essential to know what the Bible teaches. But still the greater question is whether we have a relationship with the Spirit of Christ. Have you trusted Christ as Savior and do you walk with him daily in fellowship? Is the fruit of the Spirit - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control - your daily experience? Do you have inner peace? Are you quick to lose patience, to complain, to judge others? Are you kind and good? Do you live a life of self-control? I pray that God will use this message in your heart.
