We hope you are benefiting in a powerful way from Dr. Evans’ sermon series, The Names of the Holy Spirit. When you are under the Spirit’s control—hate gives way to love, stubbornness to understanding and dissension to unity. The Spirit enables you to do what He naturally does instead of what you naturally do.
