The X Factor

Mark Batterson

The Holy Ghost is intangible. He hovers over the chaos of our lives, bringing order. We must understand that our limits are not our ability, but what an unlimited God does through us. Our gifts are the manifestation of the Holy Spirit within us. The Spirit is our omnitient, omnipresent counselor who gives us peace and joy. He works in the realm of our emotions through the fruits of the spirit. And He makes our synapses fire in unique ways and jogs our memory to surface things that we need to remember. The Holy Spirit also empowers us to be witnesses by heightening our sensitivity and passion for people and by giving us the words to say. The Spirit helps us in our weakness and intercedes for us.
