First, join us for this special look at "The Holy Spirit" by The Bible Project.
Next, join us for our study of how God works in our lives!
How do I know if I’m “saved”? How do I know if I “have” the Spirit? What does it mean to be “Spirit-Filled”? || Christian culture often “speaks” in very different language than the Scripture does. Never compare yourself to others (see Galatians 6:4-5!) or trust in your accomplishments (or lack thereof), rather trust in the accomplishments of Jesus!
Dig Deeper: Galatians 3:1-4:7 (especially 3:3 and 4:6)
How Do We Receive the Spirit . . . according to the Bible?
Acts 2:38, Galatians 3:2 || God works through His Word! Which comes to us in spoken, written and even mysterious forms (everyday mysteries!) like Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
Dig Deeper: Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 2:39-47, Romans 1:16, 1 Corinthians 10-11, Ephesians 1:13-14, Titus 3:4-8, Hebrews 4:12
What Does the Spirit Do?
Romans 8:1-2, 8:15, 8:26 || The Holy Spirit SETS US FREE!!!!! Free from sin, from death and from the power of the devil. He establishes our identity and He comforts us, intercedes for us, protects us, grows us all while making us holy through Jesus.
Dig Deeper: Romans chapters 3-8
What Does it Look Like to be Filled with the Spirit?
Ephesians 5:18b-21 || The Spirit fills us with faith, hope, and love. “But the greatest of these is love…” Let us “keep in step with the Spirit” so that He produces His fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Or in other words: “submit to one another in reverence for Christ.”
