I found these notes in my Grandma’s old bible:
Joel said, “I will pour our my Spirit on all flesh.”
Sinner’s verse – John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
Christian’s verse – Luke 3:16 – John answered, saying to all, “I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
The believer who is baptized in the Spirit will have or be:
1. Fruit of the Spirit
2. Sensitive to the Spirit of God
3. A desire for perfection (maturity)
4. Easy to get along with
5. Humble man or woman of God
7. Praising Jesus under every circumstance
8. Walk in humble obedience to the will of God
9. Jesus will be real to you, nearer than any other person
These are the results of a Spirit-filled life. How do we line up?
Here are another couple of quotes from her Bible:
“People say God stopped His supernatural works in the first century. I’ve never heard anyone say the devil stopped his.”
“Would God expect us to go up against a supernatural enemy (devil) without supernatural weapons to fight him?”

What a treasure to have a Bible with your Grandmother’s notes in her handwriting!
Yes, Sheryl! I have found a lot of great wisdom in her Bible.
