Holy Spirit- Selfless Pursuit of Jesus

August 12, 2018 Speaker: Damian Mericka Series: Living in the Holy Spirit

Topic: Holy Spirit- Selfless Pursuit of Jesus

 What stood out to you about this message and why?
 What are the similarities between our physical and spiritual
 Does God impart from without or activate from within a gifting
from the list of Ephesians 4:11-12?
 Why is it a struggle to live selflessly with our resource at
times? Do you ever desire from God selfishly?
 How are you working to mature through the resource the
Spirit provides?


Title: Holy Spirit- Selfless Pursuit of Jesus
Series: Living in The Spirit
Text: Supporting Scripture(s)
Main Idea: Gifted to serve alongside each other in Gospel Mission
I. Resourced to Live Selflessly
 God promises to not only deliver the people from
bondage, but to lead them into a new land and resource
them to life selflessly:
o Promise made: Genesis 15:12-16
o Promise Reaffirmed: Exodus 3:13-22
o Promise Fulfilled: Exodus 12:33-36
o Purpose of the Resource: Exodus 25:1-9
 Selfishly-> Exodus 32: 1-6
 Selflessly -> Exodus 35:21-29 / 36:3-7
II. Gifted to Mature Selflessly (Ephesians 4:1-16)
 Jesus has delivered us from Spiritual Bondage (Vv.1-10)
 Jesus has gifted from Heavens treasury (Spirit) us with
all that we need to live selflessly amongst one another,
helping and serving each other as we grow / mature into
the Body of Christ on the foundation of Truth (Vv.11-16)
o Activated from within (See 1 Timothy 3:1-13)
III. Love is key to Living Selflessly (1 Corinthians 12:12-13:13)
 One Body. Many Members. One Spirit. (Vv.12-13)
 Sovereignly arranged by God, the Father, in order to
grow in a healthy fashion (Vv.14-26)
o Note & Contrast with 2 Peter 2:1-22
 Value is in our being loved by God, not our gifting from
God (Vv.17-31)
 All gifting serves a temporal purpose; but love is
eternal. We need to grow up. (13:1-13)
 Biblical Maturity is selfless living through both our
physical and spiritual resourcing from our Sovereign
