THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN AND THROUGH THE CHRISTIAN
Good day church,
This Sunday we will continue in the series about the Holy Spirit. Pastor Josh directed us to the promise of the Holy Spirit from Joel 2, the fulfillment of which resulted in the church being established as a nation of priests. Consider, I Peter 2:9: "...for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light." This Sunday we will consider the work of the Holy Spirit which prepares us to be "royal priests" and "show others the goodness of God".
