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

September 15, 2010 (filled with the spirit)

filled with the Spirit

"Nothing in Scripture teaches
that the filling of the Spirit
is accompanied by
ecstatic experiences
or external signs.
To be sure,
being filled with the Spirit
does bring the believer
tremendous exhilaration and joy,
but the New Testament epistles
reveal that being filled
with the Spirit
brings forth the fruit
of the Spirit,
not the gifts of the Spirit."
- John MacArthur
