Reversing our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit
Author of Crazy Love, Pastor Francis Chan offers a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit’s direction in our lives.
“In the name of the Father, the Son, and, the Holy Spirit.” We say those words — we pray in the name of all Three Persons of the Trinity. But how often do we live with an awareness of only the first Two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit — “the Helper” — so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ.
Unfortunately, today’s church has admired the gift but neglected to open it. Breakthrough author Francis Chan rips away paper and bows to get at the true source of the church’s power – the Holy Spirit.
Chan contends that we have ignored the Spirit for far too long, and we are reaping the disastrous results. Thorough scriptural support and compelling narrative form Chan’s invitation to stop and remember the One we have forgotten, the Spirit of the living God.
