While preparing for a sermon a few weeks ago I came across this quote from John Stott. I don’t want to get in his way, so let me just encourage you to read this carefully and prayerfully, and to reflect on the central role the Holy Spirit plays in your life with Christ.
“Without the Holy Spirit, Christian discipleship would be inconceivable, even impossible. There can be no life without the life-giver, no understanding without the Spirit of truth, no fellowship without the unity of the Spirit, no Christlikeness of character apart from his fruit, and no effective witness without his power. As a body without breath is a corpse, so the church without the Spirit is dead.”
John Stott on Acts 2:1-42
