God the Father

God the Holy Spirit
Holy Spirit is not an it.

Holy Spirit is not weird.

1. Not compulsive control. (take and make us...)
2. Empowering not over powering.
3. Always glorifies Christ.
• He is my inner voice.

(John 16:8 NLT) And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God's righteousness, and of the coming judgment.

(1 Corinthians 12:3 NLT) ... no one can say Jesus is Lord, except by the Holy Spirit.
• He is my teacher.

(John 14:26 NLT) But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative-- that is, the Holy Spirit--he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.

(1 John 2:27 NLT) But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don't need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know. . .
• He is my guide.

(John 16:13 NLT) When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.

(Isaiah 30:21 NIV) Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."
• He is my friend.

(John 14:16 MSG) “If you love me, show it by doing what I’ve told you. I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you. This Friend is the Spirit of Truth.

(2 Corinthians 13:14 MSG) The amazing grace of the Master, Jesus Christ, the extravagant love of God, the intimate friendship of the Holy Spirit, be with all of you.
1. Holy Spirit show me.

(Ezekiel 36:26-27 NIV) I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.

(Psalm 139:23-24 NLT) Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
2. Holy Spirit change me.

(2 Corinthians 3:17-18 NLT) For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. . . . And the Lord--who is the Spirit--makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
3. Holy Spirit fill me.

(Acts 4:31 NLT) After this prayer, the meeting place shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the word of God with boldness.
God always has more to:

Know about Him

Learn from Him

Receive from Him

Do for Him
Being filled with the Holy Spirit doesn’t make me better than you ... it makes me better than me.
