The Holy Spirit of Christ is the ultimate link to God's participation with today's Christian. We have tried church growth and discipleship development on our own. It proved vain, empty, or both. Man with all of his intellect cannot build the church for God. Jesus builds it through His people. When we yield to His Spirit the promised peaceful fruit of righteousness seems to gain momentum in the common believers. I encourage you about your work. Every church's solution is found in the co-operation of the Holy Spirit.
A week doesn't go by that I don't get calls or emails or run into some who are curious to know about the Holy Spirit. The more we learn of him and yield to him, the more the church seems to flourish.....in spirit. No coincidence, is it?
I am continually reprinting the study workbook on Empowering the Ordinary (The Holy Spirit Helping Inadequate Believers). This work is a rewrite/revision of my earlier book The Holy Spirit Makes No Earthly Sense. I couldn't find a publishing house to do the reprint but we had so many calls for the book and I believed in it so much I hired a printing company to publish it for me. I pay for it myself. I've been reprinting it on my own for about six years. It is tough to keep in stock.
I know it's my own book. I know I can look badly pushing it. However, I'm more interested in the people who want to study the topic. If you would like more details, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The book is designed for small groups and Bible classes. We keep shipping out orders every week and it just keeps going.
You don't need the book to know about the Holy Spirit. THE BOOK has enough to say. Mine is merely one of many guides through the Word. Having my stuff is insignificant. Having the Holy Spirit is ultra significant. We cannot bear his fruit without him. He blesses the church. Thank God for sending His Son first and His Spirit second. We cannot do without either.
