The Holy Spirit Testifies to Christ


John 15:26-16:4


Christ revealed Himself through His miracles.

We accept Him; our sins are forgiven.


Jesus sends The Holy Spirit who testifies.

The Spirit helps us understand Jesus.

Our hearts are opened; we don’t “fall away.”


Father created a wonderful world.

Christ died for our sins, including fumbles.

Holy Spirit is always there for us.


God the Father allowed His Son to die.

Jesus ascended and sent The Spirit.

The Holy Spirit consoles and comforts.

Trials have good purpose; let our faith be seen.

The Trinity has cooperation.

They don’t misbehave like the three stooges.


Patrick McCaskey
