Overview

Ser cristiano puede ser más difícil de lo que debería ser. Desanimados, ansiosos, agotados, nos preguntamos qué pasó con el poder y el gozo prometidos por Jesús. «Podrás orar, oír predicaciones excelentes, hacer un fuerte énfasis en la Biblia, tener un magnífico grupo de alabanza y una congregación trabajadora», escribe Cymbala, «pero si no tienes un contacto vital con el Espíritu de Dios, te estás perdiendo la vida que Dios tiene para ti.» El Espíritu Santo es el agente de Dios en la tierra. Sin embargo, es el menos comprendido, del que menos se predica, y del que menos se habla entre los miembros de la Trinidad. Esto es triste, porque sin Él nuestra vida espiritual será seca, mecánica y llenas de luchas. Con relatos sobre la forma en que Dios está obrando hoy, y enseñanzas bíblicas acerca del Espíritu Santo, Jim Cymbala te invita a experimentar a Dios de una manera vital y fresca. Si quieres poder, confianza, gozo, paz y amor en tu vida, necesitas comprender mejor cómo y por qué se mueve el Espíritu, para unirnos a Él.

Spirit Rising: Tapping into the Power of the Holy Spirit 4.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 9 reviews.

Pastor Cymbala has done it again, what a great tool and inspiration to get people thinking about how the church actually should be. This was heart wrenching and moving just as the Holy Spirit moves in our lives. Cymbala shows that we need to slow down and listen to the Spirit moving in order to be wholesome in our faith. A must read for those seeking more!

Sated and rather disappointed by a video series of Cymbala used by our church's small group ministry, I put off reading this book for weeks. I don't like the sub-title. It struck me as turning what should be Spirit-centred into how we can find power for ourselves. Then one Sunday, I sat down and read it almost through. I came away with a new appreciation for Cymbala and our need of the Holy Spirit. I'm often put off by the books and videos put out by famous and highly promoted preachers. So I'm glad I persevered. That which sets Cymbala's book apart for me was the combination of a solid rather than aberrant theology of the Holy Spirit, astounding examples of conversion and deliverance seen in his church in Brooklyn, and the transparency of Cymbala himself. Instead of coming across as a theological or practical expert on the subject, Cymbala repeatedly emphases his own fears and needs. He cries out in prayer for the Holy Spirit again and again. Through it all he is very balanced and very biblical. The book is divided into three sections: God's Agent on Earth, When God's Spirit moves, and when we surrender to the Holy Spirit. In this first section he describes the basic biblical teaching on the Spirit but seasons this with examples; the astounding answer to prayer for Pakistani Christians suffering from a terrible example of persecution and the conversion of Roma, a wild player in New York's drugs and gambling scene. In this first section he also laments the deadness and lack of spiritual power in most of our churches. The second section also comes alive through illustrations of dramatic interventions of the Holy Spirit. He underscores our need of the Spirit to understand and apply Scripture, to find joy, to find power for living a Christ-like life, and to interpret the sign and symbols of renewal. Section three brings the Holy Spirit even more intimately into our lives. He shows how only the Spirit can help us love the unlovable, impress us with our need for fellowship, overcome fear, and enliven our prayers. Spirit Rising is an inspiring read that plateaued Christians, and those who think they aren't—like me—should read. I do, however, wish Cymbala had included many more examples of the sanctifying influence of the Holy Spirit on more ordinary Christians. Too many of the examples highlight dramatic deliverance of people from unbelievable evil and problems. And what about when the Holy Spirit does not answer prayer. What about perseverance. Nevertheless, a very uplifting read
