Ministering in the Spirit

One reason so much of what is done in the name of the Holy Spirit today is not of the Spirit is because Jesus is never mentioned or glorified. That contradicts Jesus' teaching and should warn us as preachers that our sermons must be Christ centered and redemptive in their focus, or the Spirit's power will have nothing to do with them.
