Some Christians rarely think of the Spirit of God. Many think of the Spirit as useful to give us success in Christian living and ministry. Others consider Him a source of mystical experiences. However, the Bible reminds us almost a hundred times that the Spirit is holy and the giver of holiness. By examining a deadly confrontation between the Holy Spirit and hypocrites in the church, this message will show that the Spirit is the holy God who stands against this wicked world, and yet also the Spirit of Christ who is multiplying a holy people—one changed life at a time.
