Should Christians Expect Powerful Spiritual Experiences Today?

From the Show

I don’t think we should go looking for experiences; we should go looking for God. Experiences come but when you go look at the powerful experiences that people in the Bible had it wasn’t by looking for the experience. It was something that happened to them, outside of them, that caused them to experience God in a new way.​— Michael Horton​​​​
