THE UPPER ROOM: THE PROMISED HOLY SPIRIT
Spirit Empowered Works
John 14:12-15

“All that believes is not faith, and much of that being called faith today is not faith at all.” – Ron Dunn

I. FAITH IS FOUNDATIONAL

Biblical Faith…

II. FAITH BRINGS FORTH GREATER WORKS

“His chief work was not performing miracles but revealing the Father. . . . When Jesus left this scene, committing His gospel to a little group of eleven men in order that they might carry it to the ends of the earth, at that time the whole world, with the exception of a few in Israel, was lost in the darkness of heathenism. But in three hundred years Christianity closed nearly all the temples of the heathen Roman Empire, and numbered its converts by millions. These were the greater works, and down through the centuries He still carries on this ministry.” – H. A. Ironside

“Greater works mean more conversions. There is no greater work possible than the conversion of a soul.” – J. C. Ryle

III. FAITH AND PRAYER IN HIS NAME CHANGES EVERYTHING

“Jesus Christ has great claims on God, and we should go to God in our prayers not on the ground of any goodness in ourselves, but on the ground of Jesus Christ’s claims.” – James Montgomery Boice
