From David: It is my unique privilege to begin a series of messages on "The Holy Spirit". He has been a close friend of mine since my salvation experience in 1964. He has been misunderstood and misrepresented throughout the history of the church because He has been ignored and unknown. Yet, He has been active and alive in those who have trusted Christ as their personal Savior, and is really Christ's ascension gift to us. It is the Holy Spirit who convicts sinners and convinces us of the reality of Christ's love. It is He who baptizes us into the body of Christ, gives us fruit and gifts, and is the one who helps us pray, learn, witness, and find comfort. Why do we know so little about Him? Well, we teach about God and Jesus, and think that we have done our job. No! A million times, No! We must learn from the Holy Spirit, or we won't learn at all the truths of God. I ask you to deeply consider "walking in the Spirit" so you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Let's learn more about this wonderful person the next few weeks.
