Yes, we’re going there: our new sermon series is all about the Holy Spirit. This week, Jake talks about who, exactly, the Holy Spirit is, finally addressing from the pulpit the question Christians have been asking for so many years: what is the one difference between the Holy Spirit and essential oils?
Jesus promised us a Helper. Today we’re talking about the fulfillment of that promise, in detail: How has the role of the Holy Spirit changed since the days of the Old Testament? When does He begin to dwell in the heart of a believer? What does it mean for Him to dwell in us in the first place? And – what if He’s supposed to be present, but we just don’t feel it?
You’ve heard it called “the Fruit of the Spirit,” we’re calling it the Produce, and one translation even calls it the Harvest of the Spirit. No matter what you call it, Paul’s famous list helps understand what it means to live a Spirit-filled and Spirit-led life. Bonus: lessons from a French Press.
Jesus said that we would “receive power” from the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8)… but what kind of power, exactly, does the Spirit give us? What’s a spiritual gift, and how is it different from the Fruit (or, of you will, Produce) of the Spirit? Jake tackles these tough questions and more in the conclusion to our series on the Holy Ghost.
