The Holy Spirit

2010 RightNow Conference

One of the most overlooked aspects of our faith is our relationship with the Holy Spirit. Many times we try to minister on our own strength and fail. As we lead people to serve, we have to remind them to rely on the Holy Spirit. In this 48-minute session from the 2010 RightNow Conference, JR Vassar, Lead Pastor of Church at the Cross, candidly shares from his own experience to caution against settling for the results of the works of the flesh.

As you watch, take notes and write down thoughts about how this message can impact your ministry.

JR used John 20 to illustrate leaning in and depending on the Holy Spirit. Jesus’ entire ministry is credited to the power of the Holy Spirit.   

The exciting promise of the new covenant is not just forgiveness and eternal life, but that we too have been given the Holy Spirit to carry out the mission. God actually comes and lives within us.
