Live in Freedom

“Living Beyond Yourself ” is the theme this month in Sunday School as we focus on the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. This is such a timely study for our church as we seek God during these days. Too often, Christians try to live in their own power, and of course we fall short. But when we rely on the Holy Spirit to guide us, we can be confident we are following in the will of God.

 

This coming Sunday we start our study with John 16 in which Jesus is explaining to the disciples that He must leave and the Holy Spirit would come. The role of the Spirit is to convict people about sin, to show the righteousness of the Father and to help people to realize that God is the great judge over evil.In addition the Holy Spirit guides believers with truth and brings glory to the Triune God.

 

Strive to be present each week as we open the Word and our hearts to the Holy Spirit.

Things to Ponder:

Did you know that as a Christian the Holy Spirit is within you?
Did you know that each Christian has the “same amount” of the Holy Spirit?
What percentage of your day do you allow the Holy Spirit to guide you and percentage do you rely on self?
Does it make a difference when you begin the day by asking the Holy Spirit to take control of your life?
What questions do you have about the Holy Spirit?
