Today's message, "Filled With The Spirit" by Pastor Chris Dyer, was the first sermon in the Series "Living the Filled Life."
Some Christians believe that what happened on the Day of Pentecost was an isolated event, but that's not the case. Jesus made it clear that all of His followers should be filled with the Spirit, and this was not just a suggestion - it was a priority.
First, Jesus commanded His disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the Spirit. Second, the filling of the Spirit is described as a gift, a promise, and a baptism. Third, the filling of the Spirit is not about us - it's about the Kingdom of God. Fourth, the filling of the Spirit is about God's power in our lives! Fifth, God gives us His power to make us witnesses for Jesus everywhere. Our words and our lives will tell the world about the Savior!
Rick Warren said, "Christ-likeness is not produced by imitations, it's produced by inhabitation."
Give yourself to God and receive His filling and power. Let God start a revival in your heart. Let's seek God for an outpouring of His Spirit in our families, our church family, and in our community.
