The Neglected God (Holy Spirit) (3 of 12)
CHRISTIANITY FOR DUMMIES
Rev. Jim Henry, Pastor
John 14:15-18; 25-27, Acts 1:4-9 and 5:1-4
I am going to read the Gospel of John 14:16. If

to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let
your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." Would
you pray with me?

Help us to release our lives to You, Holy Spirit. Let
the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart
be acceptable in Your sight, Oh Lord, my strength and
my redeemer. Spirit of truth, speak through me today.
In Jesus' name, Amen.

services. Some people began to talk or act like
animals, cackling like a hen, braying like a donkey,
barking like a dog; passing out. People would come
