Empowered Week 4: "The Holy Spirit is not a bird." with Guest Ty Buckingham
Many Christ-followers could give a good description of God, the Father and give an understanding of Jesus, the Son, but what about the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit may be the most misunderstood Person of the Godhead (the Trinity). We get glimpses of Him throughout the Bible as wind, smoke, fire, a dove, etc. but misunderstand His necessity. Who is the Holy Spirit? How important is the Holy Spirit? Jesus himself said in Acts chapter 1, that, before the church could move forward, they needed to be EMPOWERED. They were not to be empowered with a “what” but a “who.”
And that “who” is the Holy Spirit.
Join us in March as we begin a six-week series in the book of Acts as we study the Holy Spirit’s empowerment of the Church and how He wants to empower our lives today.
Today’s culture has formulated some crazy ideology surrounding the Holy Spirit and, sadly, has turned many people off to the idea that a relationship with Him is a valuable and obtainable reality. In this book we are going to debunk the quirky, false claims that we have been led to believe about the nature of the Holy Spirit. We will take real steps toward the understanding of His true nature, as well as what our lives can look like as we welcome His involvement in our daily lives. I truly believe that by the end of this book and, more importantly, this small but significant encounter with the Holy Spirit, you will be standing at the doorstep of a life you once believed was only to be lived in your dreams.
