Who is the Holy Spirit? Why is working with the Holy Spirit such a good fit for ex New Agers? In this episode I take a look at the mystery of the Holy Spirit through a S.O.A.P. Note Bible Study on Romans 7:5-7. This verse can be found in the One Year Bible reading for July 22, 2018 and is written out below.
When we were controlled by our old nature, sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced a harvest of sinful deeds, resulting in death. 6 But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit. Well then, am I suggesting that the law of God is sinful? Of course not! In fact, it was the law that showed me my sin. I would never have known that coveting is wrong if the law had not said, “You must not covet.” Romans 7:5-7 NLT
Today’s Scripture Sunday S.O.A.P. Note Bible study is on Romans 1:8-9 and what it taught me as well as an experience I had recently on Facebook with someone who is still very caught up in the New Age. This experience lead to prayer and a beautiful experience of the love and compassion of our Lord Jesus Christ. That testimony is included in this episode as well.
God knows how often I pray for you. Day and night I bring you and your needs in prayer to God, whom I serve with all my heart by spreading the Good News about his Son. – Romans 1:9
What are prophetic dreams? Are they becoming more or less common? And what do they say about the times in which we are living?

What does it mean to follow Jesus in an everyday personal kind of way? And how can Scripture help? In this episode I talk about John 21:19 and what it says about our own individual path and how we can best follow Jesus.

Waiting is never easy and waiting on God is especially tough. Whether we're seeking an answer to a prayer or the fulfillment of a promise, the longer we wait the easier it is to wonder if God really cares. In this episode of Today's Christian Life, Christian blogger Barbara Graver looks at the challenge of waiting and the gift of God's own timing.
Why should we quote Scripture when we pray and what kind of Scripture works best? In this episode Christian blogger Barbara Graver talks about using God's promises to stengthen our prayer. Includes free resource, tips and demo. Probably should have added - if this is His will for us - is a good addendum for all our prayers!
