It never gets old! I love what I do! I love the people of Capital City Church!
Our new pattern of service prep for the worship team is settling in. Great time of prayer before service and great time of worship during. We’ve got an announcement coming soon regarding our music and arts program. Looking forward to what God is going to do in this area.
I always anticipate baptism days. It is one of my favorite things I get to do as a pastor. We had three baptized today. Awesome! Great testimonies of God working in their lives.
We started a new series today called “Third Person.” This series about the Holy Spirit will address some myths and some misunderstanding about who the He is and His purposes and workings in us. We will be looking at what the Bible says and hopefully bring some clarity. Ultimately, each person must decide how much they will allow the Holy Spirit to work in their lives.
The question comes down to, do we trust God to do everything He wants to do in us?
Too many have taken the things of the Spirit and caused confusion and division with their own goofiness. The Holy Spirit is not weird or goofy or scary. He is real and very much a relevant part of our practical and daily lives.
We discussed two major purposes the Spirit has in our lives:
The first is to glorify God. Everything the Spirit does is for this. If something is bringing glory to a person, it is not the Holy Spirit’s work. He brings glory to Jesus and the Father.
The second is to guide us into truth. He brings understanding and clarity as we read the Bible and He guides us in our daily lives. The Holy Spirit is God. If we follow Him, we follow God.
Several responded to say yes to God today. Some to something that the Holy Spirit has been guiding them in already and they have not fully surrendered, others were giving their lives in surrender to God to follow His journey for their lives.

I can’t wait to see what else God is going to do over the next few weeks!
