Ice Breaker

What 3 words describe you best? 

Purpose

The purpose of today's lesson is to gain a deeper understanding of the Holy Spirit and the role he plays in our lives.

Scripture

Joel 2:28-29 NLT
28Then afterward
    I will pour out my spirit on all flesh;
your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
    your old men shall dream dreams,
    and your young men shall see visions.
29 Even on the male and female slaves,
    in those days, I will pour out my spirit.

DISCUSSION

"We limit God way too much"

Q1 -  The Bible talks about The Holy Spirit pouring out upon all people. That includes you! Have you encountered the Holy Spirit in your life? 

Q2 - You are not excluded from the Holy Spirit coming upon you or from the power He provides. Since this is true for everyone, do you feel like there is more power that you haven't been experiencing in your walk? Have you been limiting what God can do in your life?

The Spirit comes upon those who are in one mind and one accord.

Q3 - Would you describe your relationship with people from the church as united, or divided? 

Q4 - How do you think you can be more united with God's people? How will this allow the Holy Spirit to flow better in your life? (Acts 2:1-4)

The Holy Spirit is the manifestation of the power of God. But watch out for areas of compromise. 

Q5 - Are there areas in your life that you've been compromising? How can you stop compromising (so that you can see the power of God move in your life)?

The Holy Spirit is our Helper.

Q6 - Name an area of your life that you could use a helper. How can the Holy Spirit help in this place?

Declaration: "I will live with Holy Spirit in me. I will acknowledge the Holy Spirit daily with all of my heart, and walk in the power he provides!"

Application

Wake up everyday this week and pray to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Acknowledge the Holy Spirit in everything you do, because He wants to help you.
