Foreword by Robert Morris When Jesus needed help, He went to the Helper. Where do you go?
If Jesus needed help, we all do. Spirit-Filled Jesus explores the role of the Holy Spirit in and through the life of Jesus, revealing aspects of His life that have not been examined before and helping you see how this applies to you. In understanding how Jesus lived His life through the power of the Holy Spirit, you will learn how to:
- Maintain emotional health even during hardship
- Redeem your relationships with friends, family, and enemies
- Be perfected through suffering
- Forgive others as Jesus forgives you
- Defeat the demonic with five God-given weapons
Everyone knows the Holy Spirit as the Helper but may not realize He helped Jesus.
Jesus resisted temptation, endured suffering, and overcame Satan, all by the power of the Spirit. You can do the same. The Spirit that empowered Jesus also lives in you! God wants us not only to admire the life of Jesus and reflect it in our lives but also to experience the same source of life-giving power that Jesus did.

What People are Saying About This
"Mark Driscoll is one of the best thinkers and Bible teachers in the church today. He is also deeply spiritual and understands the work of the Holy Spirit from his own personal experience. Mark is a dear friend of mine, and there is no one I respect more than him as a theologian, pastor, Bible teacher, and true man of God. Spirit-Filled Jesus is a great book that will enlighten your understanding of Christ and enrich your spiritual life." —Jimmy Evans Founder and CEO, MarriageToday Lead Apostolic Senior Pastor, Gateway Church "When we think about what being Spirit-filled looks like, we probably think about the Book of Acts and the amazing work God did through the first Christians. But Mark reminds us that the perfect example of living by the power of the Holy Spirit was Jesus Himself. Whether he is teaching or writing, Mark has a gift for making the Bible understandable and accessible. I’m so glad he’s written this book, and you need to check it out!" —Greg Surratt Founding Pastor, Seacoast Church President, Association of Related Churches (ARC) "Sometimes we mistakenly rely on our own strength rather than realizing we have access to a power greater than our own, the same power that raised Jesus from the grave. In his book Spirit-Filled Jesus, Pastor Mark Driscoll challenges us to lean into the Holy Spirit when making decisions, resisting temptation, and overcoming the obstacles that are holding us back. This book will change the way you relate to people, endure suffering, and grow your faith." —Craig Groeschel Pastor, Life.ChurchNew York Times Best-Selling Author "The essential for living an abundant life is the ministry of the Holy Spirit within every believer. This life is the living presence and power of Jesus alive in us. Mark Driscoll describes this life in Spirit-Filled Jesus in a way that will enlighten your mind, energize your walk, and strengthen your witness. May this extraordinary book encourage and equip you to experience the fullness and freshness of the Jesus-filled life in your life every day." —Jack Graham Pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church Author; Two-Time President, Southern Baptist Convention "Spirit-Filled Jesus is one of the most practical books on the power of the Holy Spirit at work in the life of a believer I’ve ever read. Mark Driscoll is truly a gifted communicator. Mark makes the complex simple. I would recommend this book to anyone, and I was blessed and touched reading it." —Greg Laurie Senior Pastor, Harvest Christian Fellowship; Author; Harvest Crusades "If we want to know what God is like, we need to look at Jesus. If we want to know what a genuinely Spirit-filled life looks like, we also need to look at Jesus. His entire life and ministry were guided and empowered by the Spirit. He fulfilled His Father’s will as led by the Spirit. He performed His miracles by the power of the Spirit. And He spoke truth as informed and prompted by the Spirit. In Spirit-Filled Jesus, Mark Driscoll cuts through the theological grids, personal speculations, and unfounded notions that so often cloud our understanding of the Spirit’s work. You’ll find this book to be theologically accurate, culturally relevant, personally challenging, and at times laugh-out-loud funny. I highly recommend it." —Larry Osborne Author and Pastor, North Coast Church "If you picked up this book in hopes of finding more, something wonderful has begun for you. More strength, more wisdom, more grace to endure and conquer—more of Jesus Christ! Not just what Jesus did but how! Thank God for giving my friend Mark Driscoll such a wonderful way with the Scriptures. Life-changing truth is at your fingertips in this incredible new book, Spirit-Filled Jesus." —Dr. James MacDonald Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel Walk in the Word Ministries Author, Act Like Men and Vertical Church "If you’re not living by the power of the Holy Spirit, you’re not living at all! Spirit-filled living is the only way God wants us to live. In Mark Driscoll’s superb and accessible book you’ll get a definitive primer on the most important subject there is." —Eric MetaxasNew York Times Best-Selling Author, Bonhoeffer, Miracles, and If You Can Keep It
