Recap

Today is Pentecost, the day when the Holy Spirit came to dwell among us. It is easy to downplay this day as something not that special. However, it is a day worthy of great celebration. It can be easy to see our downfall into sin and the need for a Saviour, but what about help sharing that good news of the Saviour? And that is what today is all about. God has sent us the Holy Spirit to take residence within us to aid us in sharing the good news of Jesus. Of course, sharing the good news manifests itself in many different ways and in each way (through each spiritual gift) we see the spirit at work. As you read through the selected text this week, pray for the spirit to be moving in your heart and mind.

Questions to think about as you read:

  1. What stands out from Sunday’s passage? If you could dig deeper into one part of it, what would it be?
  2. The words of this passage are spoken by Jesus as he reads from the scroll of Isaiah. As we hear these words today what is our role now having the spirit in us?
  3. Jesus again speaks these words from the gospel of John. And in verse 21 we read, “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” How does reading this make you feel? What does it mean when Jesus says I am sending you?
  4. We like to think of the Holy Spirit as a New Testament thing, but what does this psalm say about the Holy Spirit?
  5. We concluded our reading on Sunday at verse 21 in Acts 2. Today skipping ahead to verses 42-47 how was the Holy Spirit shaping the early church? How is the Holy Spirit shaping the church today?
  6. The apostle Paul writing this to the church of Galatia speaks of the fruit of the spirit in this passage. What fruits have been evident in your life this week? Which fruits would you like to see more of in your life?
  7. Read this passage from Romans in preparation for this morning’s worship service. Be in prayer for us all as we come together to worship our God and creator!
