The Holy Counselor
Jesus taught that the Holy Spirit will be with us forever. Who is the Holy Spirit? He is the Holy Counselor. As the Holy Counselor He is personal –He knows us and loves us. He is also parallel to Jesus, He is Jesus’ helper and He is our helper. The Holy Spirit is also permanent, He is with us forever. He is with us for as long as we are on this earth!The post The Holy Counselor appeared first on First Baptist Church Laurel.
What Is God Up To?
What is the purpose of God? What is His agenda? We see His purpose in the covenant He made with Abraham. We see His purpose in Jesus. We see His purpose in Paul. He is on mission to win the whole world to Himself. This is also every Christian’s mission.The post What Is God Up To? appeared first on First Baptist Church Laurel.
Every believer is to praise God. Regardless of the circumstances in which we might find ourselves we need to praise God. We are to praise Him in worship, we are to praise Him because of His power, and we are to praise Him with instruments. Every person alive is to praise Him!The post Praise God! appeared first on First Baptist Church Laurel.
Walking With God
Paul declares that we are to be imitators of God. This means we are to walk after God. We are to live as God lived in His Son. We are to walk in love, purity, wisdom, and under control of the Holy Spirit.The post Walking With God appeared first on First Baptist Church Laurel.
Stagnant. In a rut. Locked into the same patterns. Do these short sentences describe your life? They do for many Christians. This is not what God intends for us. Instead we should be constantly seeking to “grow up” in Christ. We should grow into Christ-likeness because that is why we were redeemed. We are to grow into Christ-likeness because of what has been done for us. And, we are to grow into Christ-likeness because of what we have been called to do.The post Grow Up! appeared first on...
