Experiencing the Spirit
Author: Henry Blackaby
The first Christians turned the world upside down.” Why aren’t we? Early Christians shook the gates of hell and faced severe persecution. The result was people all around being filled with wonder and amazement” (Acts 3:10). Why aren’t Christians today having the same impact? In this audiobook, Experiencing the Spirit, Henry and Melvin Blackaby explore the foundational truths about the gift and the work of the Holy Spirit in a believer’s life, revealing how Jesus’ teaching about the life of God in us powers our supernatural purpose and guides us in the fulfillment of our relationship with God day by day. Only through the Holy Spirit, our Advocate, the very presence of God within, is the simple experience of this awesome indwelling reality available. And now, with the Blackabys as our guide, it’s time to move beyond simple belief in that power into the actual daily experience and outworking of it where faith will never be the same.
"Wayne Shepherd interprets the writings on the Holy Spirit by this father-and-son team with authenticity—capturing the power of the Holy Spirit's release, described in scripture, Acts 17. Then he explores the Holy Spirit's role among Christians today. In a baritone voice he encourages listeners to petition God for the release of the Holy Spirit's supernatural power in their lives—not for personal gain, but for empowerment to serve God. He also explores how an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit leads to the committed obedience essential to Christian life. With a natural-sounding narration Shepherd defines the differences between natural talents, spiritual gifts, and true supernatural empowerment."
