Last weekend, I spoke at the 2012 Springfield, Illinois Bible Conference, organized by my friend Dr. Curt Daniel, pastor of Springfield’s Faith Bible Church. Dr. Daniel spoke on the identity of the Spirit, sins against the Spirit, and the filling of the Spirit. Pastor Charles Leiter, co-pastor of Lake Road Chapel, Kirksville, Missouri, spoke on conviction by the Spirit, regeneration by the Spirit, and prayer and the Spirit. I spoke on the illumination of the Spirit, the sanctification of the Spirit, and the inner witness of the Spirit. The conference was attended by 250 people from the Midwest. A good spirit was present, and book-buying was brisk.
