This Week’s Message from Touching Lives with James Merritt

James Merritt - February 19, 2017

Fire Out

The Bible teaches us that we can either take full advantage of the Holy Spirit, or we can “quench” Him. It’s completely up to us. But why would we lean on our own understanding when we have access to God’s love, direction, correction, and comfort 24/7? It doesn’t make any sense, yet we all find ourselves in the place of choosing to be our own boss. And honestly, that leads to a mediocre life at best.

From Series: "Holy Who?"

The Holy Spirit is mysterious... even to most Christ-followers. Who is He, and how does He interact with us each day? How do we know when the Holy Spirit is talking to us. What does it mean to grieve the Spirit, or to quench the Spirit, or to be baptized in the Spirit? Join Pastor Merritt as we dive into the Bible to learn Who the Holy Spirit is and how we can live more like Jesus every day through Him.
