Dr. Jo Anne Lyon ~ Difference Maker: Holy Spirit


Dr. Jo Anne Lyon, General Superintendent of the Wesleyan Church, preached this sermon at Cypress Church on February 16, 2014. Sermon notes accompany the video.


Therefore I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to God. I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done – but the power of signs and wonders, through the power of the Spirit of God. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have full proclaimed the gospel of Christ. ~Romans 15:17-19

“The coming of the Holy Spirit means the awakening of the total reserve of human nature. It is a honing of the sharp edge of human energies and capacities in order to fultil one’s God-appointed mission in life.” ~Mildred Wynkoop
