Sermon Notes - Holy Spirit Sunday


Theme: Holy Spirit Sunday

(An Invitation to New Life)!


Key Preaching Verses

Acts 2.1-4:  “When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.  Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.  They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”

John 14.16-17a:  Jesus encourages His disciples, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you for ever –  the Spirit of truth.”
