What does it mean to be spiritual? What is true spirituality from the Holy Spirit if God? How do you know what is of the Holy Spirit and what isn’t? These are the questions we tackle as I continue our series through 1 Corinthians.
I kick off our summer sermon series through the end of 1 Corinthians with one of the weirdest, most debated, most difficult to understand passages in the entire New Testament! As we study 1 Corinthians 11:2-16, we’ll see that it’s not so much about what role women should have in the church, but rather how women and men should go about fulfilling the role and ministry God has given to them.
We live in the era of the Holy Spirit, when the Spirit of God advances the mission of God through the church of God. What does the mission of the Holy Spirit look like, and how does He work in and through us to accomplish that mission? I briefly examine five stories from the Book of Acts that reveal the Spirit on mission.
In Ephesians 5:18, the Bible commands us to “be filled with the Spirit.” What does that mean? How can we be filled with the Spirit? And why are some Christians not filled with the Spirit? I continue our series on the Holy Spirit by looking at what the Bible has to say about the filling of the Spirit in the life of a believer.
2,000 years ago during the Jewish holiday of Pentecost, the world changed. The Holy Spirit was poured out with power and supernatural miracles, fulfilling an ancient prophecy and ushering in a new era in human history. I continue our series on the Holy Spirit as we look at this incredible event in Acts 2 and explore what it means to live in the Last Days.
Who is the Holy Spirit? There are so many weird, wacky ideas about Him floating around in the world, and to be honest, there’s a lot of unknown as well. For millions of Christians today, it’s too easy to neglect the Holy Spirit because we’re not really sure who He is, what He does, or how He works. I kick off a new series, The God Christians Forget, by laying a biblical foundation for who the Holy Spirit is. As we’ll discover in the weeks to come, He is the key to living the Christian life God has called us to.
Do you tend to be a rule-keeper or a rule-breaker? How do rules and laws relate to right and wrong? What is right and wrong, anyway? In the fourth message in our series Stuff Christians Believe we see what the Bible has to say about living a righteous life. Hint: It’s not about following the rules!
