What a joy and privilege it is for me to share with you this Sunday about God, the Holy Spirit! The blessings He brings to the lives of believers are almost innumerable. We could spend our time learning of His comfort, guidance, wisdom, or love; but this week we are going to focus on the Spirit’s power in our lives.
All true Christians have the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in their bodies – which means we have incredible power in our lives! But too often, we put limits on that power. If we truly believe that God is living within us, our lives can and should be transformed. We should be the most kind, loving, and forgiving people anyone ever meets. Our lives should be shockingly different from those who are not followers of Jesus.
The disciples were so in love with Jesus that it broke their hearts when He told them He was leaving, so they must have in shock when He says to them: “it’s to your advantage that I go away…”
I hope you’ll prepare your hearts for what our Lord has for you this Sunday. If you’ll read through John 14 & 16, you will see where Jesus introduces us to the Holy Spirit and teaches some of the blessings He brings into the lives of believers. Join me as well in praying that God will “pour out His Spirit on Avalon Church!”
Can’t wait! Very excited! Love you church!
“Lord, if you want to use me in any way today, I am available.”
