Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Gift of Community, Part 2 of 4 (When the Spirit Has His Way)

July 30, 2013

By looking at the early church, Pastor Lutzer shows us how, through the Holy Spirit, the Christians lived and spread the good news of the Gospel. Through the unity they all shared in the Spirit, there was a connectedness that gave them power. Their holy living caused the world to feel uncomfortable, and we would do well to follow their example.

The end is near. These words can be a wake-up call or a comfort. While acknowledging that what is yet to come for the world is beyond the scope of our finite minds, Pastor Erwin Lutzer reminds us that we have not been left completely in the dark. The King Is Coming has been written precisely to aid your personal examination of Scripture’s prophecies. Saturated with both humility and a sense of urgency, this book not only provides answers for those questioning what happens next, but also empowerment to live accordingly in the here and now.

It’s unfortunate that one of the most blessed teachings about the Holy Spirit has been a source of confusion for many people. The baptism of the Holy Spirit places all who believe in Jesus into a new community: a fellowship of those indwelt by the Spirit as evidence of their new birth in Christ. Some see the baptism as a special anointing whose mark is speaking in tongues—but what does the Bible say?

Through Jesus, the Living Water cleanses us, regenerates us, gives us a new nature, and empowers us. We can be at peace and have the assurance that we belong to God forever.

Jesus stood on a feast day and cried out to the crowd that those who believed in Him would experience rivers of living water in their souls. He didn’t offer us a recipe. He offered a relationship—He offered Himself. That’s an amazing invitation, one everyone should heed.

What water is to the body, the Holy Spirit is to our soul. Things of this world can’t fill the emptiness we feel. We are actually seeking something beyond this world. And Jesus said that if anyone is thirsty, they should come to Him.

How gracious Jesus was to promise a companion who would be closer to us than even He was while on Earth. With the Holy Spirit as our permanent companion, our past has been forgiven and cleansed and our future is sealed, so there’s nothing to fear in the present.

The Holy Spirit is not only with us, He is in us. When we sin, He is grieved. When we think that no one cares, He comforts us. When we can’t pray because our circumstances are so dark, He prays on our behalf.

Jesus promised His disciples a companion who would be with them after He was gone. That companion was the Holy Spirit, and He’s still doing for today’s disciples what He did for the original twelve so long ago. So when you think that no one cares, the Holy Spirit is with you for fellowship and companionship. He will not leave you.

For those who have believed in Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit is in them and beside them as a helper, comforter and teacher. He’s here to birth holiness in us and to keep us on a trajectory towards holiness. So if we let the Spirit have His way, He’ll consume everything in our lives that isn’t holy. He will purify us.

Who is the Holy Spirit? To put it simply, the Holy Spirit is a person. He’s not an “influence.” He has all of the attributes of personality. He has intellect. He has emotions. He has a will. He also has all of the attributes of deity. He is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent.
July 17, 2013
Today we begin a series that explores basic doctrine about the Holy Spirit—doctrine that has suffered at the hands of extremists who associate the work of the Spirit with various manifestations.
