The Holy Spirit is God and a member of the Trinity. Hopefully, we all know and understand that. He is not some mysterious force or object.
Did you know that, being God, He has a distinct personality? That is hard to wrap your mind around, isn’t it? It is for me.
Having a personality, He can also be specifically offended. Now if there is one thing I do not want to do, it is to offend the Holy Spirit.
This Sunday morning–in my message, “Honest to God”–I am going to look at the sin of a couple named Ananias and Sapphira from Acts 5. The Bible says that they “lied to the Spirit” (Acts 5:3 NLT). Now, what does that specifically mean and how does one do it?
Not only that, but I will identify six particular sins we can commit against the Holy Spirit, including lying.
Can anyone out there identify the six sins the Bible says we can commit against the Spirit? If so, let me know right here! I’ll send a signed copy of Lost Boy to the first person who gets it right.
Lost Boy book signing
Speaking of Lost Boy, I wanted to update you on some Lost Boy happenings . . .
I will be doing a Lost Boy book signing after the services this Sunday at Harvest Christian Fellowship, Riverside. So if you would like me to sign your copy, come on out!
Lost Boy documentary is almost done
The Lost Boy documentary is almost completed. We are going to be doing some special showings of it here and there in the next few weeks.
Lost Boy: The Documentary will premiere at Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside on Sunday, June 22, at 6:00 p.m. I will be speaking after that as well.
We will show the movie at Calvary Chapel of Kendall in Miami on Wednesday night, June 25. I will be speaking after that showing for my friend, Pastor Pedro Garcia.
The movie shows again in Florida on Saturday, June 28 at Calvary Chapel of Fort Lauderdale. I will also speak at all weekend services for my friend, Pastor Bob Coy, with a message that will help believers know how to use their story as we tell “His Story.”
Lost Boy will show at the Strand Theatre in Kalispell, Montana (home of Fresh Life Church) on Sunday, July 6. I will speak there for my friend (I have a lot of friends!), Pastor Levi Lusko.
I will doing a TV interview for Lost Boy on the Daystar network on June 10. I am not sure when that will air, but I will let you know when I find out.
So, that’s what’s new for now! Have a blessed weekend and, as Billy Graham always used to say at the end of his crusades on television, “Don’t forget to go to church this Sunday!”
