Vintage message from October 15, 1989, recorded at Calvary Chapel of Mira Mesa, San Diego, California.
“If the Holy Spirit isn’t in control of your life and you would like for Him to be, start by being obedient to the Word. Read, pray, and you’ll grow. Your growth doesn’t come by seeing me week after week…hearing [me] preach the gospel to you. Your growth comes through obedience. First, to the little things. Get in the Word. If you haven’t read your Bible this week, you haven’t grown this week. If you haven’t prayed this week, you haven’t grown this week…Why not get into the Word and grow in it? Why not allow the Lord to take that control of your life to cause you to grow?”
