You Are Possessed - Holy Spirit (3 of 3)
Series: Simple Christianity Pt. 4
John 14:15-17, 25-26, Acts 1:4-8, Isaiah 40:29-31
We are prone to complicate things rather than simplify things. Life is not meant to be so complicated but rather to be simple in what one needs to know. Yet we seem to gravitate towards complexity because it makes one look maybe smarter.
Jesus when talking to His disciples said that we need to become like little children if we are to inherit the Kingdom of God. Children by nature do not complicate things but rather take a simpler approach to life.
Children are not bogged down with worry, debt, complex relationships. I have never had my kids come to me and tell me ''Dad this relationship with my friends is complicated.'' No we many times make things complicated.
Story about a Demon Possessed person. Now in regards to the Holy Spirit, He is one of the most misunderstood Persons of the Trinity. In fact there has been much division on the Holy Spirit, especially the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
