This is the first sermon in our new series. In John 5:19-20, Jesus speaks of the coming of the Holy Spirit. At Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came to the disciples and began an active presence with God's people. Christian life is designed so that we must depend on the Holy Spirit. We need the Spirit's active work in our lives for effective ministry in the world. He will empower your daily life. The promise of the Holy Spirit is for everyone.
