The Holy Spirit
Main idea: God is present in the world through his Holy Spirit. His Spirit: teaches people what is true,
convicts people of wrong,
regenerates/saves those who repent and believe in God's love through Jesus,
transforms (sanctifies) us to be like Jesus!
We Believe, God (Father, Son, and Spirit) made everything. He loves us. God is always working to save us. And he offers forgiveness and life through the death and resurrection of Jesus.
Holy Spirit
Throughout the Old Testament God gave his Spirit to specific people to empower them to do what God asked.
Matthew 3:16-4:1
16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

4 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
Holy Spirit
Jesus himself welcomed God's spirit to lead and empower Him for God's mission to save people from sin.
Holy Spirit
Welcoming and being guided by God's Spirit is how he created us to live with Him.
Holy Spirit
Jesus left his disciples and returned to the Father, but he sent God the Holy Spirit to live with and in them! God is with us!

Holy Spirit: Teaches
The Holy Spirit teaches us who God is, what is true, and how to live.
Holy Spirit: Convicts
As the Spirit teaches us he also convicts (reveals) us where we are wrong, inviting us to truth and a closer relationship with God. Convicting people of sin is not our job!

Holy Spirit: Sanctifies (transforms)
The Holy Spirit transforms us as we walk with God. Each day we listen to Him, learn, admit when we are wrong, ask his help, and choose what is right. This is what it means to live like Jesus lived, to become Christlike.

God made everything. He loves us. God is always working to save us. And He offeres forgiveness and life through the death and resurrection of Jesus. We become a new person as we repent, and totally surrender our lives to God. God guides us and transforms us as we let his Spirit live in us.
