For many people the reality of the Holy Spirit remains elusive and the operation of the Holy Spirit remains confusing. What part does He play in the normal life of a Christian? How important is it to acknowledge Him and open your life to Him? In Blessings of The Holy Spirit you will examine some of the classic texts the Bible contains on the Holy Spirit and come to understand how you can cooperate with Him and receive His Blessings. This book explains how the pouring forth of the Holy Spirit was not simply an event that occurred more than 2,000 years ago on the Day of Pentecost. Today it is a crucial part of the experience being born again, created anew for a spiritual life that is now one with God for eternity.
When my father, Dr. Herbert E. Kann, retired from 40 years as a Presbyterian minister he gave me the books he valued most. Dr. G. Campbell Morgan authored many of them. That was my introduction to Dr. Morgan's work. Throughout the first 40 years of the 20th century Dr. Morgan was considered by many to be the greatest Bible expositor of that day. He explained the truths of Scripture as no one else could. In 1904 he became pastor of Westminster Chapel in London, England. There were many requests that his sermons be made available in printed form. Each week Dr. Morgan chose one of his weekly messages for publication. At the end of the year they were bound under the title The Westminster Pulpit. I have 10 of those volumes. The lessons in Blessings of The Holy Spirit draw heavily on that body of work. They loosely follow his outlines and make use of his matchless word studies. I first taught them in Fort Worth, Texas, in 2009. My life has been greatly enriched by Dr. Morgan's scholarship and by the insight the Holy Spirit gave to him. These lessons are my attempt to share these blessings with a new generation of seekers.
