But it seems there are two extremes in churches today —
Some emphasize knowing the truth of God’s Word.
Others emphasize experiencing the Holy Spirit.
But don’t these belong together?
Here’s a 4-minute video in which I describe how this works.
Scriptures to help you —
You’ll end up developing your own list of favorites.
But here’s some that I have found powerful —
- The 12-year old Jesus wowing the Scribes and Pharisees with his answers (Luke 2:46-47).
- The compassion of Jesus as he heals a woman who had been doubled-over by a spirit for 18 years (Luke 13:10-13).
- The love of Jesus as He welcomes children (Matthew 19:13-15).
- Jesus’ zeal for the Father’s glory as he overturns the money-changer’s tables (John 2:14-17).
- Jesus crying out “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mark 15:34).
How did this impact you?
