THE REALITY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT


Living in a Post-Christian Society

October 12, 2014

 

WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT AND WHAT DOES HE DO?

1 Corinthians 12

 

Now I want to give you some further information in some spiritual matters. 1 Cor. 12:1 (Ph)

 

My dear friends, don’t believe everything you hear. Carefully weigh and examine what people tell you. Not everyone who talks about God comes from God. There are a lot of lying preachers loose in the world.1 John 4:1 (Mes)

 

1. God’s Spirit is carrying out God’s purpose.

 

  • Helper

“I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper to be with you forever”. John 14:16 (NCV)

 

“The Helper will teach you everything and will cause you to remember all that I told you”. John 14:26a (NCV)

 

Rom. 8:26-27

 

  • Spirit of Truth

“…the Spirit of truth”. John 14:17 (NCV)

 

But we know these things because God has revealed them to us by his Spirit, and his Spirit searches out everything and shows us even God’s deep secrets. 1 Cor. 2:10 (NLT)

 

2 Pet. 1:20-21

 

  • Holy Spirit

“…This Helper is the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name”. John 14:26b (NCV)

 

Isa. 6:8-9 Acts 28:24-26

 

  • Spirit of Christ

And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them are not Christians at all. Rom. 8:9b (NLT)

 

2. The Holy Spirit works through me.

 

John 14:16

 

“He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world at large cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you do, because he lives with you”. John 14:17 (NLT)

 

John 7:38-39

 

3. The Holy Spirit helps me get to God.

 

John 16:8 (NLT)

 

“The Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven”. John 3:6 (NLT)

 

Rom. 8:16

 

Acts 1:8 (NCV)

 

1. If I’m convinced I need Jesus Christ, I’ll ask Him into my heart.

 

2. I’ll concentrate on following Jesus and the Holy Spirit will produce a new way of living through me.

 

3. I’ll use the Bible to determine if what I feel is what the Holy Spirit wants me to do or not.
