Welcome Adie Johnson!

Welcome Adie Johnson!

Adie continues our series on the Holy Spirit by looking at the role of the Holy Spirit in prayer.  The text of emphasis will be Romans 8:18-30.  This is a powerful text where Paul waxes eloquent about the hope we have in Jesus.

Paul speaks about the reality we live in, here and now – a world where there are signs of bondage and decay while at the same time the redemption of Christ has come and the signs and hope of the renewal of all things are underway.

So what are we to do with the frustrations and hardships we and others experience on a daily basis?  Paul gives us wonderful instruction and encouragement to deal with these things.  Its wrapped up in the gift and work of the Holy Spirit, thank you Jesus!

As you read Romans 8:18-30 in preparation for Sunday, ask yourself, what is the role of the Holy Spirit in prayer?  See you Sunday at Crestview.

As I write this, we just arrived in Michigan for Morgan’s graduation as a registered nurse from Calvin College.  Two down, one to go!  See you all soon,

Pastor Mark
