Topic: The Holy Spirit- Our Helper

Message outline

Title: The Holy Spirit- Our Helper

Series: Living in the Holy Spirit

Text: Supporting Scripture(s)

Main Idea: Gifted to serve alongside each other in Gospel Mission

 

  1. Holy Spirit- Empowering (Numbers 11:16-30)
  • Moses’ relationship with God is suffering under the weight of leading the Children of Israel (Vv.1-23)
  • God has Moses gather 70 men for a sharing of the Spirit’s anointing to raise help for Moses (Vv.24-26)
  • Moses understood that the goal is maturity- knowing and making God known!
    • See: Ephesians 4:9-16
  1. Holy Spirit- Leading (John 3:16-4:2)
  • Jesus is anointed after Baptism by the Spirit (3:16-17)
    • Note: Isaiah 42:1
  • Jesus is led by the Spirit to a place of testing (4:1)
  • Jesus prepares Himself for what is to come (4:2)
  • Followers of Jesus are led of the Spirit (Romans 8:12-17)
    • Note: 2 Timothy 2:15

III. Holy Spirit- Companion (John 15:26-16:15)

  • Jesus promises a Helper (John 14:15-26)
  • This Helper will bear witness of Jesus along side of us, in partnership (John 15:26-16:7)

Knowing Jesus & Making Jesus Known

  • The Holy Spirit is different than Jesus, but a very real person (John 16:12-15)
    • See: 1 Timothy 4:1-2; Acts 8:29

“Without the Spirit of God, we can do nothing. We are as ships without wind. We are useless.” -Charles Spurgeon

Going deeper questions (SMall Group)

  • What stood out to you about this message and why?
  • What did Moses mean by wanting all to prophesy? How does this relate to Ephesians 4:9-16?
  • What does it mean to be led by the Spirit? How was Jesus “led” when He is fully God, without sin?

Does the Holy Spirit have a voice?  What are we doing to prepare ourselves to say YES! to God today?
