Here is a sneak peak for tomorrow’s sermon at Jaffrey Bible Church.
Title and Passage
Awesome WonderLuke 5:17-26
“To be filled with the Spirit means simply that the Christian voluntarily surrenders life and will to the Spirit. Through faith, the believer’s personality is permeated, mastered, and controlled by the Spirit. The meaning of “filled” is not to “pour into a passive container” but to “take possession of the mind.” That’s the meaning found in Luke 5:26: “They were filled with awe.” When we invite the Spirit to fill us, the Spirit’s power grips our lives with this kind of strength and passion. To be filled by the Spirit is to be controlled by the Spirit. Spiritual Leadership by J. Oswald Sanders
The awestruck reaction to the miraculous healing of the paralytic’s broken body in Luke 5 ought to be the same type of reaction toward God’s healing of our broken souls.
Please pray the Lord will bless this sermon and use it to accomplish his will by changing us to be more like himself.
