The most important function of our spirit is communion. The scriptures tell us, “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24) In this message, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung teaches us how to train our spirits towards true communion with God and fellowship with other believers. Audio and video for this message are now available.
