Reinhard Bonnke describes how we too can be an extension of God’s love to the world by partnering with the Holy Spirit. With a firsthand account of the mighty manifestations of God at work today, Bonnke takes a careful look at what Scripture teaches about the anointing and gifts of the Holy Spirit in general and then explains each of the specific gifts listed by the apostle Paul. Jesus lived, worked, and prayed in the power of the Holy Spirit. With this same anointing, we can live this way as well.

You can live honestly, confidently, and fearlessly, because everything looks different once you see the God who sees you.
Humanity has far too much self-importance. As pride creeps in, we want more recognition, more admiration, more influence. Few have ever wanted less. Putting the premise into action, an established Christian author writes anonymously about living and dying in simplicity, contending that true success, as modeled by Jesus, starts with humility, service, sacrifice, and surrender. When we stop imitating the world and choose to embrace obscurity, real life—chock full of significance, purpose, and renewed passion—begins.
