How the Holy Spirit Changes Everything—From the Inside Out
(Moody Publishers, 2018)
WHO: Daniel Henderson, president of Strategic Renewal.
HE SAYS: “We must reawaken our understanding and resolve to experience the promise of ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory’ (Col. 1:27) for the sake of a culture that is confused and held prisoner by darkness.”
THE BIG IDEA:This book walks readers through 10 practices to help them experience the Holy Spirit.
Outlining 10 vital habits for a new experience of the Holy Spirit, the text examines one practice per chapter, starting with “Agree to Evaluate Your Assumptions.”
Chapter 2 tackles embracing the Holy Spirit’s primary purpose while Chapter 3 encourages readers to live in the new covenant.
Chapter 4 shows Christ followers why they should pursue an “indwelling person” instead of an “external presence,” then Chapter 5 takes a long look at why we should worship as if we were the house of the Lord.
“Experience the God Who Already Showed Up” is Chapter 6; Chapter 7 is “Seeking a ‘Filling’, Not a ‘Falling.’”
The eighth practice is filtering the message and the ninth examines the gift of biblical emotion. The book concludes with “Maximize Your New Covenant Life Plan.”
