On Sunday I encouraged you to pray daily the prayer that Eli taught Samuel: “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening” (1 Samuel 3:9). Have you heard God speak yet this week? Have you sensed a leading or prompting of the Holy Spirit? Have you been guided in tangible ways? Tell me about it. Let’s share our stories of how we are discerning the voice of God.
This Sunday, we continue our sermon series on the Holy Spirit, but we do so one hour earlier due to the start of Daylight Savings Time. Don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour before you go to bed Saturday night. Then join us Sunday morning at 8:00; 9:30; or 11:00 a.m.
Hundreds of Ward attendees are reading the book Forgotten God, by Francis Chan, over this Lenten season to help us reexamine what the Bible actually says about the Holy Spirit. Angie and I have enjoyed discussing this book in our small group and with our kids. If you would like to check out another book on the Holy Spirit, consider of these top picks:
- The Holy Spirit: Activating God’s Power in Your Life, by Billy Graham.
- The Counselor: Straight Talk About the Holy Spirit, by A.W. Tozer.
- Empowered Evangelicals: Bringing Together the Best of the Evangelical and Charismatic Worlds, by Rich Nathan and Ken Wilson.
Thanks for your willingness to dig deep into the things of God!
