The Wind Beneath our Wings

Dr. Ron Lyles

Family Union and Reunion

Dr. Ron Lyles

I Will Pray for You

Go Ahead and Open It

Dr. Ron Lyles

The Presence of Personal Purity

A Fruitful Family Tree

Dr. Ron Lyles

2/13/11

Description:The “fruit of the Spirit” (Gal. 5:22-23) has to do with one’s characteristics or attitudes that make up our character. Only the Holy Spirit can produce the attitudes and characteristics of Jesus in our lives. This fruit is love in all of its dimensions.

Under The Influence

Dr. Ron Lyles

2/6/11

Description:Jesus followers are commanded to be filled with the Holy Spirit. To be filled with the Spirit is to be under His influence or control. Two things may prevent that from happening. We may have our lives filled or cluttered with other things. We may not be open to the work of God’s Spirit in our lives. Do you see evidence in your life that God’s Spirit controls you?

The Holy Spirit and the Holy Scripture and the Holy Spirit

Dr. Ron Lyles

Bump

Tico Montoya

1/23/11

Description:There are so many Apps available out there for our phones, and there are so many Apps on people’s phones that go unused. What about the Apps God has for our lives? Do some of them go unused? As we live this life as followers of Christ we are called to be a witness for Him. It is impossible to be a witness without the power of the Holy Spirit.

Wanted: Not Dead But Alive

Dr. Ron Lyles

1/9/11

Description:God alone creates life. He alone can make us ALIVE to His purpose and will for our lives. He does it through the person and the presence of the Holy Spirit. We are not spiritually alive unless the Holy Spirit lives within us. As Ezekiel 37:14 says, “I will put my Spirit in you, and you will live.”
