Be Filled With The Holy Spirit

Selected highlights from this sermon.

Have you ever stopped to wonder why Jesus said that you’d receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you to preach the Gospel?

It’s because when you share the Gospel, you are going up against two formidable powers that you can’t overcome on your own: the human heart and the spirit world.

By looking at the early church in Acts, Pastor Lutzer shows us what can be accomplished when we’re filled with the Spirit.

We also learn how to be filled with the Spirit. Then he shares this prayer with us that he prays each morning:

No matter how I feel, by faith I receive today the fullness of the Spirit, which is my inheritance. It is a gift given to struggling Christians just like me, and I receive that gift. And everything that happens today I’m going to say, ‘Lord, this is your problem. This is your problem. This is your problem. This is your challenge, because I can’t do it. You don’t expect me to do it. I’m going to trust You to do above and beyond whatever I could possibly ask or think because it’s Your Spirit doing it and it’s not me.’
