The Forgotten God

February 7, 2010 Speaker: Paul Ortlinghaus Series: I want to grow

Topic: Topical

We highly recommend Francis Chan's book, Forgotten God: Reversing our tragic neglect of the Holy Spirit.  This book was very helpful for Pastor Paul in the preparation of this message.

Jesus told His disciples that it was a good thing He was leaving.  They struggled with that idea and we probably would too.  But look at why He said it.

  • John 14:1-6
  • John 14:16-18
  • John 16:7-11

Do we take Jesus at His word about this?

Two commands to wrestle with:

  • Do not quench the Spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:19)
  • Do not grieve the Spirit (Ephesians 4:30)

Some questions for application:

  1. Are you afraid of the Holy Spirit ruining your life?
  2. Are you quenching or grieving the Holy Spirit?  In what ways?  Confess and repent!
  3. Will you take Jesus at His Word that it is GOOD that the Holy Spirit has come?
