Is the third Person of the Trinity a distant mystery, a vague cosmic force? Many believers acknowledge Him as a component of faith?but perhaps not as a reality in their daily spiritual walk. Yet the Bible is clear: the Holy Spirit is a vital, equal part of God, promised by the Father to all Christians. In Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit, beloved pastor and Bible teacher Charles Stanley reveals the inner working of the Spirit with simple, straightforward wisdom. With this book, you can better experience this awesome gift of God as you discover: What holiness is?and is not Seven works of the Holy Spirit in your life Three potentials God desires you to develop How to remain full of the Holy Spirit Four great questions to ask God every day If you are faltering, or easily fall prey to temptation, maybe you've forgotten to rely upon the power of the Holy Spirit and begun to rely only on yourself. The Christian life is meant to be increasingly dependent on His power working within you. Learn today to live in the power of the Holy Spirit.
I came in contact with a person who was talking about his visions and tongues and all kinds of other things. I didn’t know how to respond to it, so I began to read up on the subject of gifts and the Holy Spirit more in-depth. Charles Stanley’s “Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit” was a good supplement to all the other books I’ve read this year. He gives you a biblical overview of what the scriptures say, and interjects his own teachings around it, so that you can better understand the Holy Spirit in comparison to non-biblical movements.
