Come, sit, and let Francis Chan talk to you about the Holy Spirit in Forgotten God. Is it easy to remember the Father and the Son isn’t it? But what about that third aspect of God? Why is he so easily forgotten? Especially when Jesus himself says it is better for us that he goes, and the Holy Spirit comes (John 16). Read, and fall in love with a loving God all over again.
One of my favorite quotes:
My favorite verse is quite possibly James 5:17, which reads, “Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently.” Don’t keep yourself from praying desperately and courageously for the Spirit to work in your life simply because you are not the prophet Elijah. As this verse says, Elijah was a human being with a nature like ours. He was just like us. The key thing about him? He prayed fervently.
