Are you trying to live the Christian life without the Holy Spirit? Ep 15
The Holy Spirit is a wonderful and an essential part of our Christian journey. Without Him, we are not going to be able to be the people God wants us to be for Him. Although this can be a controversial topic, I want to try and explain it because it is so important. I am not a pastor or theologian, just a believer who wants to share the love of Christ with the world. If you disagree with my explanation, that's okay. Peace be with you.  https://blueskiesandgreenpastures.com/2021/03/19/all-christians-are-spirit-filled-but-not-all-are-spirit-led/  www.blueskiesandgreenpastures.com Comments? blueskiesandgreenpasturesblog@gmail.com

Going Beyond John 3:16 Ep 6
The most well known verse in the Bible is only the introduction to knowing the great story of God’s plan for you!  That popular verse sums up the gospel of Jesus Christ, but there is much more wisdom and hope and history and prophecy in the Bible that should be read in order to understand why we needed the gospel at all.   Comments: blueskiesandgreenpasturesblog@gmail.com Blog: www.blueskiesandgreenpastures.com
