In a culture where “kinging” yourself is the norm, wise counsel is seen as an attack on personal autonomy. But how many times have you said or done something foolish that felt good, but quickly made your life worse?

Maybe it’s family. Maybe it’s integrity. Maybe it’s morality. Somewhere, we all make personal compromises. But in a world so accepting of grey morality, what does God have to say? In this message (taken from the life of King Josiah), learn about the dangers of compromising and how God responds. Killing sinful compromises and chasing after Christ is not an easy play. But today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your heart.
Christ has given the church a command: go and make disciples. But while every believer should want to get more people into church, discipleship is about far more than numbers.

To live the Christian life without the filling of the Holy Spirit is absolutely impossible. Here’s the good news: Scripture promises the Spirit as God’s down payment for everything to come.

Instead of forfeiting what the Spirit offers, learn how to be filled with the Holy Spirit and have confidence through Him.

So learn how to put aside 4 unbiblical assumptions of the Spirit and discover 5 Scriptural evidences of how the Holy Spirit can work in your life.
