Truth that Matters

The Nature and Work of the Holy Spirit

This week we turn to the third person in the Trinity. Read and reflect on the following Scriptures (which are not at all exhaustive!) considering the nature of the Holy Spirit and his work:

Genesis 1:6, 1 Samuel 16:14, Isaiah 11:1-3, Ezekiel 36:27, Matt 28:19-20, Mark 1:7-8, Luke 12:8-12, John 14:16-18, 16:5-15, Acts 2:1-21, 5:3-5, Romans 8:1-27, 1 Cor 3:16, 12:4-13, 2 Cor 13:14, Galatians 5:13-26, Ephesians 1:13-14, 4:30, 5:18-21, Heb 3:7.

Questions: Please answer each of the following questions, writing a paragraph or more on each. Use the Scriptures you have read to defend your answer.

Readings: Read the following assignments, in the order given. We will focus our discussion on the first three readings. The fourth addresses the specific question of spiritual gifts. The last is an excellent exposition of the necessity of walking in the Spirit daily, and how this relates to unusual manifestations of the Spirit in our lives.
