What is God like? In a world confused about God's essential character, where can seekers turn to discover his identity? The parables of Jesus reveal aspects of God's nature, according to Lloyd Ogilvie, renowned former chaplain of the U.S. Senate. In taking to heart these "earthly stories with a heavenly meaning," we get to know God revealed in his son, Jesus, and discover and do his will. Ogilvie guides readers through 29 of Jesus' stories, and shows what each one reveals about who God is and who we are meant to be. Throughout, Ogilvie's warm, accessible voice invites believers and nonbelievers alike to get acquainted with God and begin to experience His extravagant love for each and every person.
Bestselling author and pastor Lloyd John Ogilvie has spent years observing?and experiencing himself?the deep needs of Christians, and why those needs for love, comfort, guidance, or discernment often go unmet. In Experiencing the Power of the Holy Spirit, he draws on Scripture to illuminate the living and active work of the Spirit. Because many believers have a limited view of their great Advocate, Counselor, Helper, and Companion, they don?t realize that in day-to-day life they can depend on Him to?encourage, guide, and correct them, and prompt them to speak or act appropriately; help them identify deep motives and penetrate to the root of personal struggles; and help them discern in prayer what is best in a situation. When believers build their lives upon reliance on the Spirit, they can live confidently in life?s stressful situations and relationships, knowing they have a Friend who is always there to help.
