The Spirit Creates Relationships: After Jesus ascended, God didn’t just leave us with stories of what Jesus’ life had been like. Jesus actually assured us that his departure would be a blessing—and encouraged his disciples with the news that his Spirit would come to them and dwell with them. This same promise that Jesus gave to his disciples is a promise for us today. The Spirit is with us and helps us. And the ministry of the Spirit is greatly needed within our relationships if we are going to relate to others as Jesus did (and does). This session will consider the many practical implications of the Spirit’s activity in our relationships. Click here to download the slides for this session.
