Chapter 8 - The Fullness of the Spirit
The following is a prayer from the great Welsh Revival
Fill me, Holy Spirit, fill me,
More than fullness I would know:
I am smallest of Thy vessels,
Yet, I much can overflow.
Billy Graham concludes Chapter 8 with his statement “I am convinced that to be filled with the Spirit is not an option but a necessity. It is indispensable for the abundance of life and for fruitful service”.
What life and fruitful service do you pray for Christ Our Savior United Methodist Church? For retiring Pastor Ken and his family? For yourself?
