Baptism of the Holy Spirit

Message: The gospel according to Luke

Text: Luke 12:49-53

“Nominal Christianity” Nominal is a mathematical term which means not enough to make a difference.

Metaphors for the Holy Spirit and you: 1) Baptism, Luke 3:16

2) A tent, 2 Corinthians 12:9

They both mean, “All in!”

Ecclesiastes, Have you ever seen a mouse running in a wheel?

Philippians 3:7-8 We are afraid of “all in” because of what we may lose out on, but in reality we are not losing but gaining.

Soren Kierkegaard, "If the New Testament is to decide what it means to be a true Christian, it would be just as impossible to be a true Christian quietly as to fire a cannon quietly."
