The promise of Jesus (John 14:16-17) that He would ask the Father to send another advocate (the Holy Spirit) to be in His disciples is stunning – the more you contemplate it. And the promise was fulfilled at Pentecost.
Notwithstanding this magnificent reality, the Person of the Holy Spirit is often either sidelined in the Church or intellectually acknowledged, but not experientially embraced. When either happens, the Church and individual believers lose out. ie. we do not know the wonder of enjoying and embracing God the Holy Spirit.
Over a seven-week series, we want to encourage all disciples of Jesus to embrace and enjoy the Holy Spirit. And then be amazed at His manifest power in our lives and the ministries of the church.
The apostle John has much to say about the coming and the ministries of the Holy Spirit, in John 14 to 16. We have recently taught on these chapters. Messages are available here for download.
