Unit 1: The Pledge of God’s Presence
Most of the lessons for March include teachings about the Holy Spirit as promised to be sent to empower Jesus’ disciples after His departure. Four of the unit’s five lessons are drawn from the Gospel of John, one of the premier books of the New Testament for understanding the person and work of the Spirit.
Despite Jesus’ wonderful pledge of the Holy Spirit to be God’s presence among believers, teaching about the Holy Spirit is often either neglected or controversial in many churches today. Some Christians are wary of those who claim the Holy Spirit to be actively involved in their lives. Others cannot comprehend why all Christians are not experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit daily. Such controversy should not cause us to shy away from study of the Spirit, however, but the opposite!
