Fresh Power talks about what it means to be Spirit-filled, both as individuals and as the church. The Book of Acts is the basis for his study as Cymbala delves into what it was like for Christians back in the first century—and what it can be like for us today. The first century church believed in God’s Word, in the constant infilling of His Spirit, and in the clear and direct responses of obedience to the scripture which defined the norm for their daily and spiritual lives.
Every Christian leader knows that God’s Spirit lives in us. Some of us have grown up leary of stressing the work of the Holy Spirit in us because of the abuses of Biblical teaching. Others of us grew up believing in His work but never validating what we were taught against God’s Word. Fresh Power can either be an eye-opener or a doctrine firmer. No matter what, it is a valuable read.
