Personal relationship with the Holy Spirit

Rob has been in N.C. preaching so one of our elder,Rennes Bowers filled in. He has a great heart. He is one of the chaplains for the Dayton Dragons and is getting ready to do a mission trip at the end of July with his wife to India.
Issac Pittman led worship and did an amazing job as always with Phil Wickham and Brooke Fraser songs. He introduced us to a new song which was beautiful. I'll have to find the name of it when we sing it again.

Rennes talked about the personal relationship with the Holy Spirit. This is how Jesus comes to us.
In the western church, we are lacking in power. We don't have that relationship that the early church had. We don't have that same trust in the power that heals. In India they are experiencing that power through healing and through baptism in faith. In the 10/40 window they are experiencing that power of the Holy Spirit. They are in a time of harvest.
Many times we don't see the seeds we sow for years...we don't see that area of harvest.
You need to listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to you. Every day ask him to show you those opportunities to sow the seeds.
The Christian life is relational.
The power of the spirit of God is unleashed through love relationships.
