1. The work of the Spirit is for all, but it is PERSONAL.

(Exodus 12:1-14; Leviticus 23:15-22, 33-43; Genesis 1:1-2; Ezekiel 37:9-10; John 3:8; Isaiah 6:6-7; John 15:5; Philippians 4:13; Isaiah 40:29; 2 Cor. 12:9)

2. The work of the Spirit does NOT require any special knowledge or education.

(Acts 4:13)

3. QUESTIONS are good! We shouldn’t be afraid to ask!

(John 14:6; 1 Corinthians 14:2; Acts 4:13; Genesis 11:1-9)

4. In the power of the Spirit, we can’t allow RIDICULE from others to SILENCE us.

(Matthew 26:40; John 18:25, 26; Mark 14:66; Joel 2:28-32; Luke 21:14-15; Romans 10:13)

5. What matters is that there is a BIBLICAL basis for what we say and do.

6. The most important question that must be answered: “Who is JESUS?”

(John 10:37-38; 2 Timothy 1:7; 1 Corinthians 15:20; Psalm 16:8-11, 110:1; Mark 16:19; Jesus defeating death: Isaiah 25:8; Matthew 28:6; John 3:16, 5:24, 11:25-26; Romans 6:4-10, 8:11; 1 Corinthians 15:55-57; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; 2 Timothy 1:10; Hebrews 2:14-15; 1 John 5:4)

7. What will I DO (how will I RESPOND) to what the Holy Spirit is revealing to me?

(James 1:22; Matthew 3:3, 4:17; Luke 3:8; Acts 11:8, 26:20; 2 Peter 3:9; Mark 8:29)

 

Taking it further to help you THRIVE

1. Have you ever felt not good enough or knowledgeable enough or worthy enough or (??) for God to bless you or work in your life? How did this affect you?

2. Is there a question you have about God, church, the Christian faith, etc. that you have been too “afraid” to ask anyone? What is it??

3. Have you ever sensed God wanted you to speak the truth in a certain matter, but you were too intimidated (or maybe pressured or ridiculed) to say anything? Explain.

4. What has God been speaking to you / how might He have been “prodding” you to action in a certain area? What do you think He wants you to DO next?
