From the Pastor's Desk
It is of great concern how effectively we are passing on a Holy Spirit legacy to the next generation. Their expression of Spiritfullness may look different, but the Spirit is no less vital.
Some would accuse us of overemphasizing the Holy Spirit, as though a Spirit emphasis somehow diminishes Christ's work on the Cross. The truth is that much of the church completely disregards the person and work of the Holy Spirit. In this hour, God is inviting His people to focus on the Spirit like never before. The devil's attempt to attach so much controversy to the Holy Spirit should not surprise us. Satan wants to hinder our intimacy with God and the resulting power.
Jesus called the Spirit our Advantage, saying, "It is to your advantage that I go away...[or] the Comforter will not come" (Jn. 16:7). As God works in us, we should be intentional to develop a relationship with the Holy Spirit. He is the only way we will ever truly know God. Developing a relationship with the Holy Spirit is crucial for those who desire to discover and fulfil God's will for their lives, including young men and women seeking God's future for themselves.
