As a lead in to Pentecost, in this sermon Mr. Smith asks and answers the question, what does the Bible tell us about the Holy Spirit? He gives the answer by looking at several Old Testament passages that show actions of the Holy Spirit mostly in physical areas and shows how each of these applies to the spiritual areas of our lives as members of God's church.
