Bible Study Series >> The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit
Introduction: Mark 1:1 - 13
This Bible study series is written by Pastor Chadd Hafer to correspond with our Sunday sermon series on the Holy Spirit. Overview: Why do Christians seem to understand that studying the person and work of Christ is fundamental to our faith and yet seem to think that studying the work of the Holy Spirit will carry us into the realm of the bizzarre and unknown?
The Holy Spirit’s Work of Conviction’
This Bible study corresponds to our Sunday sermons from 8 November 2009. Overview: We can't confess our sins and receive God's forgiveness unless the Holy Spirit makes us aware of our sin in the first place.
The Spirit Gives New Life
This Bible study on John 3:1 - 16 corresponds with our Sunday sermons on 15-11-2009. Overview: According to Jesus, being born again is more than just a Christian label. So what does this term mean and how does it happen?
The Holy Spirit in Worship
This Bible study corresponds with our Sunday sermons on 22-11-2009. Overview: God isn't insecure so that he needs our worship to build him up? So why worship? And what role does the Holy Spirit play in our worship of God?
Fruit of the Spirit
This Bible study on the fruit of the Spirit corresponds with our Sunday sermons on 29 Nov, 2009. Overview: Jesus' parable about the good tree that produces good fruit and the bad tree that produces bad fruit illustrates our need for the transforming work of the Holy Spirit.
The Spirit's Gifts
This Bible study corresponds with our Sunday sermons from December 6, 2009. Overview: In 1 Corinthians 12, the Apostle Paul uses the image of the physical body to explain the work of the Spirit within the Body of Christ (His Church).
The Holy Spirit and the Birth of Jesus Christ
This Bible study corresponds with our Sunday sermons on 13-12-2009. Overview: How is the miracle of Jesus Holy Spirit birth connected to our rebirth through the Spirit? Dan Brown's 2003 Da Vinci conspiracy claimed that the early Church suppressed the truth of Jesus' humanity to establish his divine authority. But the Bible teaches that Jesus' human nature is every bit as significant as his divine nature.
The One Who Walks and Talks with Us
This is the final study in this series. It corresponds with our Sunday sermons on 20-12-09. Overview: Before leaving his disciples, Jesus promised them another Counsellor (i.e. one like him). This Counsellor is the Holy Spirit who now walks and talks with us just as Christ did with his disciples.
