34 Activities of the Holy Spirit

Includes Free Study Guide Download

The Believer’s most powerful ally is the Holy Spirit Who dwells within.  Do you know what He is trying to accomplish in your life? Do you know what He wants to do to help you?  Are you allowing Him to do His job?

Before our Lord Jesus Christ returned to Heaven, He comforted the Disciples with the revelation that He would leave them the Holy Spirit as their Helper and Comforter.

Wow!  God placed a Member of the Trinity within His children!  He is in you right now.  He will never leave you nor forsake you.  He wants to supercharge your life.  There is divine power, wisdom, insight, and more available to you through the Holy Ghost!  Yet, most Christians are unaware of His ministry.

The Holy Spirit is the least understood Member of the Godhead, yet He is the One we interact with most intimately in this life.  I encourage you to begin the journey of getting to know Him and experiencing all He has to offer.

What is He trying to do in your life today?  How can He help you?  Are you filled with Him?  What limits His work in your life? (more…)

I will be teaching a session at the Quad State Sunday School Conference on Saturday.  This is a training meeting where several hundred believers gather for instruction and motivation for the Sunday School ministry.  Please say a pray for the conference and for my session.  I’ll be teaching on the subject “Stop Wasting Your Time and Do This First”.

4 Ingredients of Effective Biblical Leadership

Leadership Meeting Teaching Outline

Serving God is a great privilege and a heavy responsibility.  These four simple ingredients will lift your ministry effectiveness to new heights.

This outline was recently taught at our monthly Leadership Meeting for all ministry workers and helpers.  I pray it will be a blessing to you as well.

1. Preparation

Preparation is vital to success. The servant of God must have time to prepare His mind, heart, and material.  Build preparation time into your schedule.

  • Preparation of Schedule
  • Preparation of Walking with God
  • Preparation of a Holy Life
  • Preparation of Hard Work
  • Preparation of Bible Material

2 Timothy 2:21  “If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.”

Don’t get swept up in the craziness of life.  You will need to purge some things from your life in order to (more…)

Three Conditions of God’s Clear Direction

Proverbs 3:5–6 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; And lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he shall direct thy paths.”

He shall direct thy paths. What a promise! Oh, how we need God’s direction in our lives! What if you had direct access to God in order to get His input on life’s decision? You do!

Life confronts us with hundreds of decisions every day. Some are mundane and seemingly unimportant while others are clearly life altering. The “big” decisions don’t cause me too much worry. I know that if I seek God’s direction with a yielded heart, He will guide me. The decisions that concern me are the ones that appear small on the surface but are going to set in motion a life altering chain of events.

I’m sure that most people reading this today have situations that require a decision, but are unsure how to proceed. We have all experienced the paralyzing fear of not knowing what to do about an important matter. What if you could ask God what to do and get a direct and clear answer? Wouldn’t that change your life (more…)
