Kevin DeYoung – Spirit Powered, Gospel Driven

Segment 1 (0:00) – The Christian walk is a balancing act between legalism and licentiousness. Preachers of the Gospel should not be scared to command people to be obedient. Kevin DeYoung explains how the Gospel ensures that people are obedient.

Segment 2 (8:52) – The Gospel has commands. Faith rooted in the Gospel gives a desire and fuel to do the work. Good deeds grow out of good news and gratitude for God’s mercy. Six encouragements of the Holy Spirit are; the Holy Spirit intercedes for you, prays for you, prays with groaning, knows exactly the right things to say, prays for our weaknesses with the will of God.

Segment 3 (18:00) – The Holy Spirit ensures your success. He is the same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead. The Holy Spirit gave Jesus power to fulfill the will of the Father, and He is the same Holy Spirit that dwells in you (if you are a true believer).
