Bestselling author and pastor Lloyd John Ogilvie has spent years observing?and experiencing himself?the deep needs of Christians, and why those needs for love, comfort, guidance, or discernment often go unmet. In Experiencing the Power of the Holy Spirit, he draws on Scripture to illuminate the living and active work of the Spirit. Because many believers have a limited view of their great Advocate, Counselor, Helper, and Companion, they don?t realize that in day-to-day life they can depend on Him to?encourage, guide, and correct them, and prompt them to speak or act appropriately; help them identify deep motives and penetrate to the root of personal struggles; and help them discern in prayer what is best in a situation. When believers build their lives upon reliance on the Spirit, they can live confidently in life?s stressful situations and relationships, knowing they have a Friend who is always there to help.

The God revealed in the Bible loves us and has a wonderful plan for us. For us to experience God's nearness, we must have a right understanding of who He is. Today's world offers many alternative "gods" to whom we can pray: Allah, Buddha, a Higher Power, and even our "higher self"! There is only one true God and He exists as Three Persons in One, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We accept by faith what the Bible tells us about God and that He sent His Son to die for us on the cross so we may have an intimate and right relationship with God. The Holy Spirit is co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. He possesses all of the attributes of God.

Meditations of a Christian Hedonist

Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.

God Within Us

Why did Jesus come to Earth as a man more than two thousand years ago? Was it to fulfill prophecy? To save us from our sins? To make the world a better place? Gaye Lisby suggests that Jesus came to be more than fire insurance: He came to cleanse us with the water of salvation and to prepare us for a second baptism of fire and power-a baptism of the Holy Spirit. The result? We are indwelt with the very Spirit of the Father and restored to fellowship with Him. Unlike books that focus on godhead theology, spiritual gifts, or speaking in tongues as evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, God within Us speaks of a journey to completion. Using uplifting, lyrical prose, Lisby suggests that just as the cross wasn't Jesus's destination, this Christian life doesn't end with salvation. Jesus came that you may have the person of the Holy Spirit within you. Just as God breathed life into Adam, the Holy Spirit breathes the eternally living Word into each of us so that we may manifest Christ in all we do, in turn breathing life into a world desperate to live.

Professor Hailu brings fresh, new insights into the operation of the spiritual gifts as found in 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 from his ministerial experiences. He tells how he was baptized in the Holy Spirit in 1993 and started experiencing what can only be termed “explosive” manifestations of the spiritual gifts shortly thereafter. He takes the position that every Christian is granted one or more gifts upon being born-again, but only fully “unwraps” those gifts upon receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. He emphasizes the importance of developing a personal relationship with and dependence on the Holy Spirit in order to exhibit the power-filled life that Jesus Christ had in his earthly ministry. As both an academic and a religious leader, this work constitutes an important contribution to the theological dialogue on this important theme. It is simply written so that the layperson as well as the theologian can rejoice with this man whom God has raised up to minister to the present generation.

Dynamic, Never-Before-Published Work on the Holy Spirit from A.W. Tozer What does it mean to have the Holy Spirit in our lives? Many look to extraordinary experiences and manifestations as evidence of the Spirit. But what happens when the event is over? How can we experience the Holy Spirit in the ordinary, everyday world? How can we be filled with the Spirit? In this material taken from Tozer's sermons, he answers these questions and explores life in the Spirit from a balanced perspective. The church needs the gifts of the Spirit--all of them--or it will never be what God intends it to be. But this has to happen in wisdom and humility. Many people talk about being filled with the Holy Spirit, but very few accept the conditions for being filled. Tozer lays down requirements for the Holy Spirit to come into our lives and transform us into Spirit-filled people. Though every Christian has the Holy Spirit, not every Christian is filled with the Holy Spirit. He explains the difference and how it could change the evangelical church of today.

Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart

How to Know for Sure You Are Saved

“If there were a Guinness Book of World Records entry for ‘amount of times having prayed the sinner’s prayer,’ I’m pretty sure I’d be a top contender,” says pastor and author J. D. Greear. He struggled for many years to gain an assurance of salvation and eventually learned he was not alone. “Lack of assurance” is epidemic among evangelical Christians. In Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart, J. D. shows that faulty ways of present- ing the gospel are a leading source of the confusion. Our presentations may not be heretical, but they are sometimes misleading. The idea of “asking Jesus into your heart” or “giving your life to Jesus” often gives false assurance to those who are not saved—and keeps those who genuinely are saved from fully embracing that reality. Greear unpacks the doctrine of assurance, showing that salvation is a posture we take to the promise of God in Christ, a posture that begins at a certain point and is maintained for the rest of our lives. He also answers the tough questions about assurance: What exactly is faith? What is repentance? Why are there so many warnings that seem to imply we can lose our salvation? Such issues are handled with respect to the theological rigors they require, but Greear never loses his pastoral sensitivity or a communication technique that makes this message teachable to a wide audience from teens to adults.
