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.
Presence is so important, and this morning we are going to look at the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. The Holy Spirit is given to everyone who believes in Jesus Christ as their Savior, and the primary role of the Holy Spirit in our lives is to be our Helper. The greatest part of the Holy Spirit being present in us is that we are brought into the family of God; being born of the Spirit, we have a close relationship with God where we can relate to Him as our Father.
