How to Receive the Gift of the Holy Spirit

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

The Holy Spirit has been sent to us as a gift and a blessing, and He is the helper we need in all areas of our lives. He teaches us to pray in the Spirit in a language we do not even know about. We cannot do anything to deserve this gift; God offers it to us out of His grace and love for us. When we have His Spirit living inside us, we can produce the fruit of the spirit. The manifestations of this fruit include love, joy, and peace. The Spirit empowers us to do what we cannot do on our own; He also gives us individualized guidance and instruction according to each person’s specific needs. His presence reveals God’s truth to us.

The Relevance of God’s Grace

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

The grace of God provides everything we need, but faith takes what grace has made available to us one step further. Being relevant means being connected with the matter at hand, which is something many of us seek. But when we strive to be relevant, we must not forget our identity in Christ. With this in mind, we must ask ourselves how significant God is in our lives. Most people think that He is only relevant when we die. However, God wants to show us His favor now, while we are still on the earth. For real results when we need them, we should acknowledge His significance in all aspects of our lives.

Good with God

By Taffi Dollar

Summary

The world has multiple ways of thinking and many different philosophies, but not all of those philosophies are in line with God’s Word. Mankind has developed its own peculiar set of values and standards, but because the devil rules this world, secular ways of thinking have become tainted. Letting down our guard leaves us open to the high thoughts of the world, which can take over and hijack the thoughts of God. Our thoughts are powerful; therefore, we must exercise caution in what we think about. We run into trouble when we begin to trust in our own thoughts and emotions instead of God’s Word concerning our lives. The world does not understand the Word of God; we stumble when we let worldly philosophies, instead of His Word, influence our thinking. We stay safe when we let the Scriptures guard and protect our minds.

The Relevance of God’s Grace: Healing

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

When something is relevant to us, it is because we see a need for it. In this age, many people simply do not see a need for God in their lives, and the world accepts this mistaken way of thinking. However, contrary to what the world’s philosophies say, God is relevant and significant in every area of our lives. We cannot rely on or trust in the world; it will let us down. When it does, we can look to Jesus, who will never fail us. We need Him in our finances, our family relationships, and our healing. It is always God’s will to heal us.

The Grace Gift of Tongues

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

The ability to speak in tongues is a gift from God, but many people are not using this gift as they should. This is because they are either afraid of it, or do not understand it. During times when we need to talk to God about something weighing on our hearts and minds but we do not have the words, the Holy Spirit intercedes and prays for us. This allows us to utter the perfect prayer without having to rely on our limited intellectual knowledge. When we pray, it is important to pray for everyone, not just the individuals we know or those who attend church. We can easily forget about the lost souls who do not know God and the people who have backslidden; praying in the Holy Spirit allows us to pray about things we do not even know about. As believers, speaking in tongues gives us a supernatural advantage the world does not have.

The Sin of Unbelief

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Living life without the guidance of the Holy Spirit is extremely risky, because it leaves us open to the confusion that is widespread in today’s world. Not only does the Spirit bring us understanding when we let Him lead us, He also points out any pockets of unbelief we may have that hinder us in our Christian walk. Unbelief is the underlying root of every sin we commit; He shows us where we have issues, and He helps us to believe. Religion makes sin the central issue; however, Jesus dealt with sin on the cross. God has already forgiven us of all our sins—even the ones we have not yet committed. The real issue is a lack of belief in this. Choosing to have faith in the Holy Ghost, and letting Him get out in front of us, radically transforms us.
