THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Gifts of the Father
Last Sunday we started a new series focused on the Work of the Holy Spirit. Jesus instructed his disciples to wait for the promise of the Father. The promise of the Father is found in Joel 2 where the Lord said, “I will pour out my Spirit on all people…” (vs. 28) Through the work of the Holy Spirit we are enabled to represent God the Father and God the Son. This Sunday we will be considering one aspect of the image of God found in all of humanity and how this guides us in our ministries. We will be considering Romans 12, particularly looking at verses 6 - 8.
