There is More!
Hi friends,

Just before Jesus ascended, he instructed his followers to prepare themselves for something more. So for the next ten days, leading up to Pentecost, they did just that, meeting to pray and worship.

This year we’re following their lead, using the ten days before Pentecost (May 31) to pray, and to let the Lord prepare us for whatever “more” of the Holy Spirit he would give. To help you in your preparation we have prepared daily resources: a video testimony, a brief Bible study, and a couple of songs. Use any or all of it that you find helpful.

And may we together discover what more the Lord has for us on Pentecost!

Blessings, Keith

A Scripture Lesson on
Something More: John 14-16
During the amazing evening before Jesus’ crucifixion, he had his “last supper” with his disciples, and he taught them about the Holy Spirit. His words are spread through these three chapters of John. Read John 14:16-17, 14:25-26, 15:26, 16:7, 16:13-15.

John remembers Jesus describing the Spirit in a unique way, as the “paraclete,” a Greek word that was used for one’s advocate in court, or for a supporter and encourager. Different Bibles translate “paraclete” differently, as it is a full word in Greek. How does yours translate it?

What roles did Jesus see the Paraclete taking in his followers’ lives? Which of those have you seen already, and which would you like to see more of?

Pray today about the Spirit at work as Paraclete in your life. Give thanks for how he has done so in the last month. Ask for him to take next steps with you in one of these Paraclete ministries.
