  • 1.  
  • 2. John 20:19-23
    • On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 
    • After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.
    •   Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” 
    • And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 
    • If you forgive the sins of anyone, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”

  • 9. Ephesians 3:14-19 On the Spirit’s reassurance
    • For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.
  • 10. Ephesians 3:14-19 On the Spirit’s reassurance
    • And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
  • 11. 1 Corinthians 12:4-7 On the Spirit’s equipping
    • There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us. A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other .
