The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God that lives in born-again believers! Our heavenly Father gives His Spirit to them that ask him. It is for all but is not in all!
The Holy Spirit; 2 Valuable Truths You Should Know
STM Bible Lesson
Lesson focus: Ephesians 4:3-6. Bible lesson background 13: Paul spoke of what we share as believers. We may be different in many ways, but we must be mindful of what we share.
One Spirit, the Holy Spirit of God
2 Valuable Truths You Should Know
2 Corinthians 3:6 …the Spirit gives life. In Matthew 3:16 it was the Spirit of God that descended on Jesus like a dove.
1. The Holy Spirit is…
A. The Spirit of Christ
Was in prophets
Spirit of Jesus Christ
B. The Spirit of God
God’s children are led by the Spirit of God
Spiritual Wisdom via God’s Spirit
C. The Spirit of the Lord
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling place with him. John 14:23 (NHEB)
Do not make God’s Holy Spirit have sorrow for the way you live. The Holy Spirit has put a mark on you for the day you will be set free. [Ephesians 4:30 (NLV)].
2. The Holy Spirit lives only in the born-again believers
The Holy Spirit gave us new life
God’s word is essential
Do Not Grieve the Spirit
The Son’s Spirit is the Holy Spirit
Jesus said “the Father will send the Holy Spirit“
Unfortunately, some believe God’s spirit is in everyone. Incidentally, each letter (epistle) in the New Testament was written to the born again (Spirit-filled) believers. Therefore, the valuable truth in Ephesians 4:6, “the one God…living in us all” applies to born-again believers.
The Spirit of Christ gives you life
In conclusion, the Scriptures often mention that the Holy Spirit is a gift from God (Acts 2:38). Also keep in mind the one baptism mentioned in Ephesians is the baptism of the Holy Spirit (John 1:33). That is the baptism Jesus baptizes with; the Holy Spirit.
