Mike's message was on how to be more free, or free-er?
Mike shared from his experience three steps to help you find more freedom in God:
8:15 Drawing closer to Jesus
12:20 Live in the Holy Spirit
16:25 The Word brings truth
(Sorry, there were technical issues with the video. Mike's last prayer is repeated at the end.)
But the Holy Spirit produces
this kind of fruit in our lives:
love, joy, peace,
patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
31 Jesus said to the
people who believed in him,
"You are truly my disciples
if you remain faithful to my teachings.
32 And you will know the truth,
and the truth will set you free."
So if the Son sets you free,
you are truly free.
Jesus told him, "I am the way,
the truth, and the life.
No one can come to the Father
except through me.
Since we are living by the Spirit,
let us follow the Spirit's leading
in every part of our lives.
15 "If you love me, obey my commandments.
16 And I will ask the Father,
and he will give you another Advocate,
who will never leave you.
17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn't looking for him and doesn't recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.
John 15:26 "But I will send you the Advocate--
the Spirit of truth.
He will come to you from the Father
and will testify all about me.
John 16:13 When the Spirit of truth comes,
he will guide you into all truth.
He will not speak on his own
but will tell you what he has heard.
He will tell you about the future.
The very essence of your words is truth;
all your just regulations will stand forever.
Make them holy by your truth;
teach them your word, which is truth.
