Welcome to the final session in our Essential Engagement series. We are learning that our growth as disciples requires other people. It is always about “us and Jesus”, not just “me and Jesus”. In our last session, we found that this Essential Engagement requires a Commitment to Mission. Jesus has given us this mission to become and to make disciples, and He has attached authority, accountability, and reward to this mission.
In this session, then, we address the “how” question. This big mission of disciple-making requires a new kind of power, more power than we humans possess within ourselves. This mission requires divine power, the power of God’s Holy Spirit. We therefore examine the Presence of the Holy Spirit and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
