Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

spiritual experience

“In an authentic spiritual experience,
emotion, feelings, and the senses
often become intense, transcending the normal.
These may include strong feelings of remorse over sin,
a mighty sense of trust
that surpasses the pain of a traumatic situation,
an overpowering peace in the midst of trouble,
the overwhelming sense of joy
related to confidence and hope in God,
intense sorrow over the lost,
the exhilarating praise in understanding the glory of God,
or a heightened zeal for ministry.
Spiritual experience by definition is an internal awareness
that involves strong emotion
in response to the truth of God’s Word,
amplified by the Holy Spirit
and applied by Him to us personally.”
- John MacArthur
