Jesus Loves the Little Children by Julie Moore

My close and personal 
friend Pat Conroy.
Okay, I met him once.

(Another great entry by Ms. Julie Moore...)

As I've gone on and on about, being a parent is a pretty heavy responsibility. Remember the book Beach Music by Pat Conroy (whom I've met, by the way?) In it, a group of siblings agonizes about their crazy mom and their dysfunctional childhood... and (SPOILER) toward the end, you find out that the mom and her brother

THE PERSONALITY AND DEITY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BY R. A. TORREY, D. D.

R.A.Torrey.lgIMPORTANCE OF THE DOCTRINE

One of the most characteristic and distinctive doctrines of the Christian faith is that of the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit. The doctrine of the personality of the Holy Spirit is of the highest importance from the standpoint of worship. If the Holy Spirit is a divine person, worthy to receive our adoration, our faith and our love, and we do not know and recognize Him as such, then we are robbing a divine Being of the adoration and love and confidence which are His due.

The Power of the Holy Spirit by R. A. Torrey

R.A.Torrey.lg(from How To Obtain Fullness Of Power by R.A. Torrey, ©1897, Fleming H. Revell Company)

"Power belongeth unto God." The Holy Spirit is the person who imparts to the individual believer the power that belongs to God. This is the Holy Spirit's work in the believer, to take what belongs to God and make it ours. All the manifold power of God belongs to the children of God as their birthright in Christ. "All things are your's" (I Cor. 3:21). But all that belongs to us as our birthright in Christ becomes ours in actual and experimental possession through the Holy Spirit's work in us as individuals. To the extent that we understand and claim for ourselves the Holy Spirit's work, to that extent do we obtain for ourselves the fullness of power in Christian life and service that God has provided for us in Christ. A very large portion of the church knows and claims for itself a very small part of that which God has made possible for them in Christ, because they know so very little of what the Holy Spirit can do for us, and longs to do for us. Let us study the Word, then, to find out what the Holy Spirit has power to do in men.
