The Forgotten God


He is the Forgotten God
Oft thought of as “It”, rather than He
 
In today’s church He bears little resemblance
To the Holy Spirit’s work in New Testament believers
 
Do our lives reflect the work of the Holy Spirit
Or do we desire to experience more
 
He is the promised Counselor and Comforter
Our bodies are His temple and He resides within
 
The Holy Spirit has been unleashed
He is available to all believers
 
He empowers us with supernatural gifts for the brethren
Through Him we can put sin to death in us
 
Our lives can be radically different
Won't you yield to the Holy Spirit’s active work within?
