180: The Empowering Of The Spirit
The Empowering Of The Spirit
In this episode Pastor Jeff will talk about the Holy Spirit’s empowering ministry. He supplies the needed power to live the Christian life and to offer any kind of service you are involved in. Living and serving in Christian ministry requires His resources, not ours. Ability that we do not have within ourselves. But God shares it with us through the Holy Spirit.
The number one way to be equipped in biblical counseling is to meditate the word of God, to know more about the scripture. To know more the word of God and the work of the Holy Spirit. We want a ministry of the Word and the Spirit.
Understanding the Truth in the Bible
Joshua 1:8 says, "This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
A person seeking counsel will need to understand that the Holy Spirit is working with them, in them and upon them - as described in the Scripture. It has to be the power of the spirit that brings boldness, empowerment, and spiritual strength.
The Bible provides us with a variety of words to draw upon. This is important. There are several terminologies that we learn from culture that become a habitual part of our conversations. We need to ‘unlearn’ the world's way of thinking and communicating. Let’s make sure you're using the same terminology that God uses in the Bible. We need to study and think about the Bible if we want to develop biblical thinking and a biblical method of explanation. In reality, we can instruct people with Bible verses.
The Holy Spirit as “With”, “In”, and “Upon”
