09 Jun Quotable Nuggets – Part 4

Last week, I shared eight powerful quotations from several of my spiritual heroes. I trust that these quotations were a blessing to you. Here are a few more of these quotations that I use in my teaching, preaching, and writings. "Today some churches get by without too much Holy Spirit but replace Him with general attractions." Reinhard Bonnke - Godly Gems to Impact Your Life "God's way is for the whole Church to be filled and kept filled with the same Holy Spirit which saved and healed those multitudes in New Testament times." F.F. Bosworth - Christ the Healer "The greatest proof of man's neglect of the Holy Spirit in this hour is the lack of power in so many churches."

After waiting for a while to get to speak to me, she pulled me to the side and told me that she just wanted to take a minute of my time to thank me. When I heard those words, time wasn't important. Suddenly, I had all of the time in the world to hear some kind words. Here is the story that I heard that Sunday. According to this mother, our service last weekend had literally changed her daughter's life. Immediately, my mind began to race. What was so spectacular about that particular service? (After all, aren't they all amazing? Oops ...
