The gospel does not stop at our sins being forgiven; there is much more to the good news mission. The Holy Spirit accomplishes many things in our world and our lives. Two chief things he does for believers are:
- Establishes and seals WHO WE ARE
- Empowers and guides WHAT WE DO
Through the Holy Spirit, believers continue to the mission of God through being and doing as God’s children in the world.
- In what ways might the world press people into identities?
- Reflect on being sealed by the Holy Spirit. How does that security make you feel?
- Does knowing you’re a child of God make a difference in how you live?
- How does being a son or daughter of God change the way you live?
- How can Jesus say, “you will do greater works than me.”?
- Discuss: the Father does works through Jesus; Jesus does works through me. What role does the Holy Spirit play?
- Reflect on your daily interactions. In what areas do you most reflect Jesus?
- Reflect on your daily attitudes. Do you notice the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5) in your life?
- The outline and application questions are intended for your further reflection and action upon the weekend message. They are also designed to facilitate discussion and accountability within your LifeGroup.
