Life in the Spirit

Life in the Spirit #2
Duration:33 mins 18 secs
Life in the Spirit #2

Two Truths...
1. The Spirit inside of us would be better than Jesus beside us.
2. The Word of God and the Holy Spirit are inseparable.

A Third foundational truth...
3. There is a certain mystery that enshrouds the Spirit's leadership.
  • John 3:8
  • God leads his people through both the mystery of the Spirit and the clarity of the Word.
No Standards?
  • Acts 16:8-10
  • Acts 16:6
  • Acts 8:29
  • Acts 21:10-14
Led by the Spirit?
  • We cannot reduce how he led to a formula in which we simply plug in variables and pull out answers.
  • The Holy Spirit will NEVER contradict, violate, or diminish the word he has already given to us.
  • God's activity in our lives doesn't always come in the way we expect or in the same ways it happened with other people.
2 Peter 1:16-19
  • Every detail of Scripture is accurate, and every promise of Scripture is true.
  • Want to hear from the Spirit? OPEN YOUR BIBLE.
The Spirit and the Word...
  • God's Spirit never operates independently of his word.
  • BUT, if you seek to obey the word apart from the Spirit you will miss out on what God wants to give you.
  • John 5:39-40
Seek Life...Two Questions...
1. Are you obeying what God has revealed in the Bible?
2. Are you seeking to know his will through diligent study of his word?
