1. School of the Spirit by Lee M. Cummings
How much of the Holy Spirit do you want? People tend to avoid what they can’t control. Believers often shy away from the Holy Spirit because we don’t know who He really is or what He might do. But if we will let Him into our lives, He will come with His power and change us forever.

4. Half the Battle by Jon Chasteen
Where have you put your pain? Do you ever feel the pressure to hide your struggles in order to look like a “good Christian”? The truth is, we all face battles and hurts in our lives. Scripture is full of God-fearing men and women who tried to cover up their problems. For Mary and Martha, the death of their brother, Lazarus, was the ultimate devastation. They put his body in a dark place and rolled a stone in front of it. But God knew where they buried their pain, and He knows where you bury yours too.
