A person’s journey of life and leadership doesn’t actually begin with them. Instead, there are a number of key factors that set the context for who we become. Brian kicks off our new sermon series by exploring the beginnings of Moses’ life – highlighting how God is always at work, even in the midst of the hardest of experiences.
At the Vineyard we pray “Come, Holy Spirit” a lot. When we pray “Come, Holy Spirit” we ask God to come and show us that he’s overcome the world. We’re asking him to make the world perfect again. We’re asking for miracles, healing and his kingdom to come on Earth as it is in heaven. Praying this can be confrontative, but it’s also good, powerful, and amazing.
God intends for every Christian to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. And while not everyone may agree on what exactly happens at that moment, it is clear that an overwhelming, empowering experience of God’s presence is part of the gift-package God has for every Christian. In this message, Brian offers some insights about the baptism of the Holy Spirit and points us towards how we can have a deeper experience of being filled with the Holy Spirit today.
