Over 100 years after a significant pentecostal renewal in many parts of the world and 50 or so years after the 'charismatic' renewal it may be helpful to again re-examine some of the classical teaching on the Baptism and Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
- It is worth asking the question whether we have fulfilled God's expectation and desires when He graciously renewed these truths in our experience
- Are we still in the good of this now?
- Are we pressing in for more of Him, and displaying Him to those around us for His glory?
One of the classic Pentecostal books teaching on this was by Harold Horton from the Assemblies of God.
Whilst certainly not agreeing with everything - I find it intensely challenging and provoking.
Since it is now in the Public Domain from a copyright perspective I have made the text available here - and hope it provokes and stirs you too, to ensure that we all press in to all that God intended.
