God promised that He would give His Spirit to His people. Jesus reiterated this promise to His disciples, and encouraged them to wait in Jerusalem for the Holy Spirit to be given to them. Because the Holy Spirit is so key to our lives as followers of Jesus Christ, our new message series will be called 'Spirit of God Lift Me Up'. We will look at Scripture to learn more about the Holy Spirit’s powerful work throughout history and in the world today and in our lives.
As Jesus neared the end of His earthly ministry, He reiterated the importance of the promise of the Holy Spirit to His disciples. He also explained to them the necessity and work of the Holy Spirit in their lives, which they would receive after He left them. The Holy Spirit was to be their Helper, and would have a specific ministry among unbelievers and believers. The Holy Spirit continues to minister in the same manner in our world today.
