The title summarizes the sermon. There are many great spiritual benefits for anyone who has the indwelling gift of God’s Holy Spirit. The number 12 is not important. If we combined some points, we could have fewer than 12. If we subdivided some points, we could have more than 12 points. The main point is this: There are lots and lots of vital benefits!
