BOOK DESCRIPTION:

20140812-074820-28100118.jpg
A wise, measured, and deeply passionate invitation to a Spirit-filled life…

Are you trying your best to be a good Christian but still feel something’s missing? Do the peace and joy you long for seem to elude you? Does following Christ sometimes feel like a lot of work—or like it’s just not working very well?

Much has been written and spoken—and argued!—about the Holy Spirit and what it means to be filled with the Spirit. Charles Stanley cuts through the confusion and introduces you to a living Person as real and active as God the Father and Christ the Son. Through personal stories, biblical exploration, and insightful explanation, he will help you discover:

-who the Spirit is—and how to develop a relationship with Him
-who the Spirit isn’t—and how to avoid damaging misconceptions
-how being “filled” with the Spirit actually works
-what the Bible really teaches about spiritual “signs” such as speaking in tongues
-how the Spirit can increase your capacity for faith, hope, love, and personal transformation
-what it means to “hear” the Spirit’s voice
-how to make the most of your unique spiritual gifting to build up Christ’s body
-what happens when the Spirit’s power is unleashed in your workplace, your family life, your friendships, and every other area of your life

In The Spirit-Filled Life Charles Stanley reveals how to recognize and begin to live with the guiding presence of the Holy Spirit.

MY REVIEW

I’m thrilled that Dr. Stanley has written a very informative, biblically-based and exciting book that’s all about the Holy Spirit.
I think that the Holy Spirit may be one of the most controversial topics in the lives of Christians today. He is probably the most misused and misunderstood person of the Trinity.
That’s why Dr. Stanley’s book is so timely!
In the day and time we’re living in, it’s even more imperative that we understand Who the Holy Spirit is and what He does.
In “The Spirit-Filled Life”, Dr. Stanley shares his own personal experience of coming to understand and discover the Person and work of the Holy Spirit.
Chapter by chapter, delving into Scripture, you will discover for yourself…
Who the Holy Spirit is
What He does
How He works
Are you tired of trying and striving and working on areas of your life?
Have you rededicated your life to Christ, promising to do better- only to fall back into your same old patterns?
Do you feel completely unequipped to live for and work for Christ?
Are you ready to experience the freedom that comes from surrendering to the work of the Holy Spirit in your own life?
Is the Holy Spirit a complete mystery to you and you’d like to understand Him more?
This is the book for you!!!
I typically dislike marking up the pages of my books and dog-earring it’s pages in case I want to loan it out….well, get your highlighters ready! This one’s a keeper!!!

*****5/5 STARS- LOVE LOVE LOVE IT; GET YOUR OWN COPY!!!*****
