One of the more neglected theological topics over the past 500 years of church history is a practical theology of the Holy Spirit; how the Holy Spirit works in your life as a believer every single second of every single minute of every single day in the grace of Christ Jesus. There are some very good systematic theology books that deal in their respective chapters with the Holy Spirit as they cover the doctrine of God, and there are even some very well written single volumes on the Spirit compiled in a systematic fashion by divines looking to give us a “theological overview of the Spirit.” But there are relatively no books on the Holy Spirit that take a biblical and historic-confessional approach and marry that with a theology of victoriously walking in the Spirit, as it relates to the abundant life that Jesus Christ has promised to his church. Jesus did not come merely to give life, but to give believers abundant life in the Spirit! Is this what you experience in your daily walk?
Every Christian desires spiritual victory in Christ, and to walk victoriously in the Spirit as outlined by Scripture, but how would you explain that daily reliance, and how would you as a believer experience the fullness of the Spirit in your own course of life? Well, that is what this little volume is about. It is to arm you with the necessary biblical ideas surrounding a victorious and abundant life of walking in the Spirit day by day in order to please King Jesus, and experience true happiness as Christ promises.
It covers what abundant life is, who the Spirit is in Scripture as it relates to his work in a believer, what it means to be baptized in the Spirit, indwelt by the Spirit, anointed by the Spirit, illuminated by the Spirit, filled by the Spirit, empowered by the Spirit, and led by the Spirit. It also covers what it means to pray in the Spirit, how to exemplify the fruit of the Spirit, how to exercise your gifts in the Spirit, and how to walk in the Spirit victoriously. It concludes with a chapter on rejoicing in Christ in the Spirit, which ought to be a culmination of this abundant life for you as a born-again believer. Christians should be walking in abundance in Christ right now through the work of the Spirit. Are you?
