Monopoly of the Spirit

A group of church leaders had gathered togther to plan a citywide evangelistic campaign. One of the men suggested that the well-known evangelist D. L. Moody be considered as a possible speaker. The pastors discussed the suggestion and several spoke favorably about Moody. But one young preacher who wasn’t in favor of inviting him stood up and said with a note of sarcasm, “From the way some of you talk, you’d think Mr. Moody had a monopoly on the Holy Spirit.” The room became quiet. Then another pastor stood up and said, “No sir, Mr. Moody does not have a monopoly on the Holy Spirit, but the Holy Spirit does have a monopoly on Mr. Moody!” Imagine what we could do if the Holy Spirit had a monopoly on us. – Pastor Brad Brandon

Galatians 5:16 “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”
