The Holy Spirit gives us
1. The PEACE of Jesus.
The Holy Spirit gives us
2. The PERSONALITY of Jesus.
(1) The Holy Spirit RESIDES IN us
(2) The Holy Spirit REVEALS Jesus THROUGH us
Jack Taylor (The Key to Triumphant Living, p. 38)
Being a Christian simply means that the Christ who came to dwell in us is going about acting like Himself in us. I may not understand it. I may not feel it all the time. But the blessed truth is that all the time, every night and day, at work and at play when I feel down and when I feel up JESUS CHRIST IS ALIVE IN ME. When I decided to trust Him as my Savior, He can to set up housekeeping in my life.”
The Holy Spirit gives us
3. The POWER of Jesus.
Herbert J. Lockyer (1886-1984)
“Did the disciples receive the Spirit at this time, or later on at Pentecost? It seems that this experience was prophetic—a foretaste of Pentecost. In breathing audibly, Christ created an atmosphere preparing them to receive the Spirit. Jesus is saying, ‘Get ready to receive the Spirit.’ His word was a command to the disciples.”
(1) To take the MESSAGE to the world
(2) To announce FORGIVENESS to the world
Ray Stedman
“Just as we must claim forgiveness, we can also offer it to people. That is why Jesus said, ‘If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven, and if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.’ This does not mean that we are given AUTHORITY to say to one, "You are forgiven," and to another. You are not.” He was saying that we are empowered to DECLARE the forgiveness of sins when people believe in Jesus.”
