Exciting, revolutionary power is available exclusively to you as a Christian . . . It is the supernatural power:
- To transform human nature
- To be the salt of the earth, and the light of the world
- To bring about a dramatic but peaceful revolution in those around you
- To face any crisis
You cannot buy this extraordinary power, nor can you find it by searching the earth for it. As a Christian it resides in you already, an awesome gift from God that you have only to claim and use once you know and accept its Source.
Christians are powerful people, Billy Graham reminds us in this inspiring and insightful book, because “we have the mighty power of God available to us through . . . the Holy Spirit,” He comes to us with no conditions attached. Jesus simply said, “If I go, I will send Him to you.”
Read this amazing book and see anew how this Person can transform your life and give you the power “to be truly good” and “to live victoriously.”
The Holy Spirit: Activating God’s Power in Your Life by Billy Graham begins with a very simple statement: “Man has two great spiritual needs. One is for forgiveness. The other is for goodness.” Graham then affirms that “God heard that first cry for help, that cry for forgiveness, and answered it at Calvary” and that “God also heard our second cry … and answered it at Pentecost.” The Holy Spirit, Graham writes, is “the source of power who meets our need to escape from the miserable weakness that grips us,” even after one has given one’s life to Christ. “He gives us the power to be truly good.”
In clear, concise prose, Graham then walks readers through biblical passages that teach about the Holy Spirit. He also describes some related concepts and experiences that are widely misunderstood, such as baptism with the spirit and sins against the Holy Spirit. And he gives readers a solid outline of the signs and fruits of the Spirit (such as love, joy, peace, patience, and kindness). Graham’s book may be especially helpful for new Christians, but it will also serve as a helpful reminder to longtime believers. “No person can seek sincerely the cleansing and blessing of the Holy Spirit, and remain the same afterward,” Graham promises. This promise is sufficiently grounded in scripture and offered with such authoritative serenity that many readers will find real comfort here. –Kevin Attwood
