Several months ago I bought Francis Chan’s Crazy Love. I loved what I read of it… I think I left it in a book bag that I don’t normally carry around, so long story-short, I still think I am still a few chapters away from the finish line. However, I have found it!
When I heard Chan had a new book out, Forgotten God and the even better news that I could receive if for free in July through christianaudio.com I jumped at the opportunity to get it. As I posted in a recent “Three For Thursday” post, I have recently re-discovered the Holy Spirit. I am very thankful for God using this book to minister to me about His Spirit.
Well, as is the way of the Spirit, I have been asked to preach this Sunday. And when I asked our Pastor if I could choose anything (which I was leaning toward something along the line of the Holy Spirit) or if he wanted to give me the subject of Scripture passage, he said, “How ’bout you do something on the role and ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer?”
Hmmm, must be a Spirit thing?
I love it.
So, your prayers are greatly appreciated as I begin my abbreviated prep-work (was just asked last night and then we confirmed after prayer around noon today). And if you don’t have a place of worship we’d love to have you at Faith in Kent this Sunday at either the 9:00 or 10:45 AM service!
In all my years of being a Pastor and all the adult and/or youth sermons I have given, I believe this is a first for me (preaching on the Holy Spirit)… I am so open to what He has for me to say so that I can speak of/about/for Him!
Trusting that this Sunday will very much be a Spirit Thing!
