Thesis

Thesis

The purpose of this sermon is to explain the gift of the Holy Spirit as given to us by Jesus Christ.

Introduction

Throughout the Old Testament, we see that the gift of the Holy Spirit was restricted to certain individuals to tackle specific or particular tasks. However, that all changed at Pentecost. When Jesus sat down with the disciples, He explained that while He was leaving this earth, He would ask His Father to send another Counselor. The disciples were still uneasy at the thought of Jesus leaving them, and I’m sure that the concept of “another Counselor” had them confused, at the least.
