In John 20:22, the Resurrected Christ breathed on His disciples and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” Then nearly 7 weeks later the Ascended Christ poured out the gift the Father had promised, the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4; 2:4,17,33). We look into these two different experiences of “receiving the Holy Spirit” and the supernatural results that Sprit-filled believers can expect, individually and corporately.
We live in the era of the Holy Spirit, when the Spirit of God advances the mission of God through the church of God. What does the mission of the Holy Spirit look like, and how does He work in and through us to accomplish that mission? Pastor Andy briefly examines five stories from the Book of Acts that reveal the Spirit on mission.
In Ephesians 5:18, the Bible commands us to “be filled with the Spirit.” What does that mean? How can we be filled with the Spirit? And why are some Christians not filled with the Spirit? Pastor Andy continues our series on the Holy Spirit by looking at what the Bible has to say about the filling of the Spirit in the life of a believer.
2,000 years ago during the Jewish holiday of Pentecost, the world changed. The Holy Spirit was poured out with power and supernatural miracles, fulfilling an ancient prophecy and ushering in a new era in human history. Pastor Andy continues our series on the Holy Spirit as we look at this incredible event in Acts 2 and explore what it means to live in the Last Days.
It’s always nice having a guide and someone who can speak up for us. This week, hear from John 16 about how the Holy Spirit is our advocate and guide as we honor the high school seniors at LakeView.
Who is the Holy Spirit? There are so many weird, wacky ideas about Him floating around in the world, and to be honest, there’s a lot of unknown as well. For millions of Christians today, it’s too easy to neglect the Holy Spirit because we’re not really sure who He is, what He does, or how He works. Pastor Andy kicks off a new series, The God Christians Forget, by laying a biblical foundation for who the Holy Spirit is. As we’ll discover in the weeks to come, He is the key to living the Christian life God has called us to.
