If you and I are going to live victorious Christian lives, we must understand the Holy Spirit’s task is to enable us to experience the Christian life. It's the Spirit who lifts the truth of Scripture off the page and causes it to explode in our lives. So, if you long for a closer walk with Christ and a new infusion of the power for Godly living, then you’re ready for The Promise—a deeper, biblical experience of the Holy Spirit.
“The question in the Christian life is not, How much of the Holy Spirit do you have? but, How much of you does the Holy Spirit have?” (Page 39)
“I think Paul is saying that the way to be filled with the Holy Spirit is to make worship a lifestyle.” (Page 88)
“You have been made brand-new. You have a new nature now.” (Page 50)
“What do we mean by the term spiritual gifts? A spiritual gift is a divinely bestowed ability given to every true believer in Jesus Christ in order to serve the church.” (Pages 301–302)
“There are three basic categories of spiritual gifts.” (Page 303)
