  • What is the sound of the LORD that Adam and Ever heard in the Garden of Eden?
  • What caused Joseph and Joshua to stand out?
  • After Jesus’ Ascension, who has received the Holy Spirit?
  • How is your conversation with God? Can others hear the Sound of God through your words and life?

 

 

Message outline

Title: Holy Spirit- The Sound of God

Series: Living in The Spirit

Text: Supporting Scripture(s)

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

 

  1. The Sound of God Heard (Genesis 3:1-24)
  • When Adam chose sin, he and Eve made a covering for themselves, knowing / expecting God to be there (v.7)
  • They heard the sound of the LORD walking in the cool of the day (v.8)
    • Cool translates into wind: wind of the day
      • See: John 3:8
  1. Conversations Between God and SOME
  • Outside: Pharaoh recognized the Spirit of God upon Joseph, evidenced by his words (discerning and wise)
    • See Genesis 41:37-39
  • Inside: Joshua is chosen to lead because God’s Spirit is in him; in response to Moses’ conversation with God
    • See Numbers 27:15-23

III. The Sound of God Fills ALL (Acts 2:1-13)

  • Gathered in an Upper Room, the Disciples await the promise of Jesus to send the Holy Spirit
    • See: 1 Timothy 4:1-2; Acts 8:29
  • Like a mighty rushing wind, the Spirit comes (sound) and fills the room (v.2), rests on each person (v.3) and fills ALL and they speak (sound) (v.4) and those around them hear (Vv.5-6)
  • Everyone there hears in their own language; the Spirit of God speaks through us into the lives of others!
  1. The Sound of God is Heard by All (Inside & Outside of Christ)
  • We are restored into the Image of God that enjoys fellowship with Him, speaking through words and actions
    • See Ephesians 4:17-32 (Focus: v.24)
  • We share in the Witness of Jesus (Gospel) through the Holy Spirit (John 15:26-27), who works through us (John 16:5-15).
  • We are to be in conversation with God (prayer) at all times in order to speak truth (prophetically) for each other’s benefit (! Corinthians 14:12-25). This is a picture of Eden restored!
