**Today’s Message – What if you had a tripod for your video camera that only had 2 legs Or what if your kids had a tricycle with only 2 wheels? In either instance, you would not be able to function at your highest capacity. Such is the case with the Holy Spirit. Many times we recognize the work of God the Father and God the Son, but when it comes to the Holy Spirit, we don’t recognize it’s amazing power. Today, we will concentrate on the Holy Spirit and see that through the Holy Spirit; You Will Have Power.”
