“You and I will not be equipped to do what God has called us to do if we do not have a relationship with God through His Word.” Beth Moore
Recently, a precious group of women and I journeyed through the Beth Moore study, Breath; The Life of God in Us. One of my favorite things on earth is to study the Word with friends and to set aside time to focus on concepts that may be new to us. This particular study was on the topic of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
“The Bride of Christ without the Spirit is a corpse.” Beth
Growing up, my family and I were members of a wonderful denomination. We were committed to sharing Christ with the lost and did a wonderful job of seeing people come to know Him. The Bible was taught and the foundation for my faith was firmly and lovingly laid. However, there were certain topics in the Word that we tended to shy away from. It was almost as though if it were difficult to understand or explain, maybe we should simply avoid it. The work of the Holy Spirit in our lives was one of those topics and we just didn’t discuss it.
Beth and the study Breath was a wonderful introduction to the incredible blessing the Spirit of God is to our lives. Truly His Spirit is the source of wisdom, comfort and power. If you are in need of a little power in your life, take a step of faith and spend some time learning about the power of His Presence.
He moves. He creates. He stirs. He breathes life.
As 2020 continues, it’s time we all took a deep Breath.
