When we read the Bible, we cannot help be see the overwhelming power that is the Holy Spirit. In the Old Testament, we read of prophets who had the Spirit of God on them. In the Gospels, we read about Jesus Christ being with the disciples. However, in John 14:16, a radical shift happens when Jesus tells the disciples that they will have the Holy Spirit living IN them! How incredible is it to think that the same Spirit that spoke the world into existence is living within all those who believe Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior! We can see the extreme transformation of the disciples in the book of Acts, as they flip the world upside down and begin the greatest movement in all of history: Christianity! In this series, we'll be discussing four ways that the Holy Spirit can be unleashed in your life, allowing you to change your world for God's glory!
