So, as we come to chapter 3, we discover that the building has begun. Here in this chapter is faithfully recorded by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit the names of those that worked on the wall.

Today we are going to take some time and think for a while about “Performance: Spirit-Filled Living”. We?ve been recruited, given spiritual gifts, baptized in the Holy Spirit.Now, what does this really mean to us? Does it make a difference in us? Should it make a difference? If your answer is “yes” to these questions, then the next question I want to ask you is, OK – so how will this happen? How will this difference come about? Continue reading
