Sermon:
Ways the Holy Spirit Comes to Help Us in Our Time of Need

Romans 8:26,27 "But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait with endurance. In the same way, the Spirit too comes to the aid of our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit itself intercedes with inexpressible groanings. And the one who searches hearts knows what is the intention of the Spirit, because it intercedes for the holy ones according to Godís will."

Tozer writes, "I have reason to suspect that many people are trying to give leadership in Christian circles today without ever having yielded to the wise and effective leading of the Holy Spirit. He truly is the Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel and power. Knowledge and the reverence of the Lord. We are too heavily leaning on human talents and educated abilities. We forget the illumination of the Holy Spirit of God is a necessity, not only in our ministerial preparation, but in the administrative and leadership functions of our churches."

Begin to approach the throne of grace with this song in your heart this morning:

Come Holy Spirit I need you
Come in thine own gentle way,
Come as the rest to the weary,
Come fill me with joy today.

Come Holy spirit, I need you,
Come Holy Spirit, I pray,
Come in thy strength and thy power,
Come in thine own gentle way.

Come like the spring in the desert,
Come to this winner of souls,
Oh, let thy sweet healing power,
Touch me and make me whole.

Come Holy Spirit, I need thee,
Come Holy spirit, I pray,
Come with thy strength and thy power,
Come in thine own gentle way.

Come Holy Spirit I need you,
Come in thine own gentle way,
Come as the rest to the weary,
Come fill me with joy today.
