Les Hollon: Living in God’s Renewing Power (Luke 4:14-30)
Les Hollon, the senior pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in San Antonio, Texas, encouraged his hearers to “live in the power of God’s renewing Spirit,” centering themselves in Christ during uncentered times. People can find their purpose in “such a time as this” by seeking their identity in Christ. Hollon points to Jesus’ recital of and identification with part of Isaiah 61 as an example of living from the security of knowing who one is, whose one is and why one is.
This sermon was delivered on Jan. 10, 2021, for the morning worship services of Trinity Baptist Church in San Antonio, as part of the series titled “For Such A Time As This.”
