How does the Holy Spirit help me?

Helper: The Gift of the Holy Spirit

“How does the Holy Spirit help me?”

John 14:16-17

The Holy Spirit leads us into the truth:

1. Revealing to us our sin and our need for Christ.

        Breathe out: “I surrender; forgive me.”

        Breathe in: “Breathe into me forgiveness.”

2. Regenerating us when we surrender to Christ.

        Breathe out: “I surrender; save me.”

        Breathe in: “Breathe into me new life.”

3. Reproducing within us the character of Christ.

        Breathe out: “I surrender; fill me. ”

        Breathe in: “Breathe into me Your presence.”

LifeGroup Questions: Applying the Teaching to Our Lives

  1. Why do you think there is so much confusion about the Holy Spirit?
  2. Read John 3:1-16. Why did Nicodemus (a religious leader) have such a hard time understanding what Jesus was talking about?
  3. Compare John 3:6 with 2 Cor. 5:17. How do these 2 verses fit together?
  4. Pastor Jim referred to a “continuum of life” during the sermon. Where are you on that continuum? Explain.
  5. If you are willing, tell your group of a time you sensed the Holy Spirit revealing a sin in your life.
  6. As a LifeGroup spend some time compiling some questions for next week’s Facebook Live Q&A on the Holy Spirit. These may be questions you personally have or your LifeGroup has or perhaps some common questions others might have. (LifeGroup leader, please send these to [email protected] Thank you.)
  7. Practice “breathing in” the Spirit this week, paying attention to His presence in your life.
  8. Try starting each day this week by saying: “Holy Spirit, lead me today. I surrender to your loving leadership in my life.” Report to your group next week how it went.
