Holy Spirit

Jesus said that we must be born of the water and of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit was also very evident and at work among the early church. We must also study the work of the Holy Spirit within us and through us.

Following this study, we want you to read an important book by Steve Smith called the Spirit Walk. Please purchase this book and read it over the coming week, learning more about what it means to walk daily with the Holy Spirit, depending on him to lead and guide you.

Below are four questions that we want to answer through our study. If you are leading a study about the Holy Spirit, you may find that each of these questions should be a separate study, a separate 3/3rds Group meeting. We recommend going through the study deliberately yourself and with your disciples.

Break into small groups of 2-3 and answer each of these questions. Report your answers back to the larger group once you have finished.
