Talk No. 8: Life in the Holy Spirit
Transcript of Talk No. 8: Life in the Holy Spirit
Life in the Holy Spirit
living is not just a matter of human will power, but a new heart and a new life from God.
"Still, I am telling you the truth: it is for your own good that I am going, because unless I go, the Holy Spirit will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you."
Life in the Holy Spirit is the kind of life that God wants for us.
Much of Christianity today looks weak, lacking in power and effectiveness.
Union with God
A new nature
Power to serve as Jesus' witnesses.
With the Holy Spirit, men gain:
Receiving the Holy Spirit: what does it mean?
Acts 2 records the miraculous giving of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost after Christ's death and resurrection.
We can experience the same power and gift of the Spirit that early Christian did
Same relationship with Jesus.
Same transforming power.
Same deep worship.
Same power for speaking the gospel.
Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
1 Cor. 12:1,4-11
Gifts of the Holy Spirit
Gift of Knowledge
How we can receive the baptism?
“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for[a] a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
Obstacles to receiving the God's gifts.
The gift of knowledge is simply the Holy Spirit transmitting His specific knowledge to you on something that you would have no ability or means to be able to know about with your own limited intelligence and knowledge levels.
Gift of Wisdom
A gift of wisdom will give you the ability to be able to properly apply the knowledge that you may already have on a particular situation.
Gift of Prophecy
The gift of prophecy is when you get a direct word from the Lord to usually give to someone else.
Gift of Faith
God has to give each person a certain measure of faith or we would not be able to get saved, as the bible tells us that we are saved by "faith" through grace.
Gift of Healing
One of the things that Jesus is wanting all of us to do for Him is to pray for the sick. And if we do, then many of the time they will "recover" which means that He is going to heal them. It can literally happen to any single believer at anytime with the Lord.
Gift of Miracles
Bible tells us that absolutely nothing is impossible with God, which will include any divine miracle that He will want to perform.
Gift of Discernment
This gift is one that is really needed in the dangerous and unsafe time that we are now living in.
Gift of Tongues
This gift is simply the Holy Spirit giving you the supernatural ability to speak in a foreign tongue that you have no knowledge or ability to speak out on your own.
Gift of Interpretation
This is gift is where the Holy Spirit will give you the interpretation of the tongues that you have either done for yourself or when they are being done by someone else.
Simply ask in faith.
An unrepentant attitude. Refusing to admit sin as sin.
Being selective as to what gifts we want.
God offers each of you new life.
