We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May these verses of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

 

Scripture:  John 15 1-10 (MSG)

15 1-3 “I am the Real Vine and my Father is the Farmer. He cuts off every branch of me that doesn’t bear grapes. And every branch that is grape-bearing he prunes back so it will bear even more. You are already pruned back by the message I have spoken.

 

4 “Live in me. Make your home in me just as I do in you. In the same way that a branch can’t bear grapes by itself but only by being joined to the vine, you can’t bear fruit unless you are joined with me.

 

5-8 “I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing. Anyone who separates from me is deadwood, gathered up and thrown on the bonfire. But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. This is how my Father shows who he is—when you produce grapes, when you mature as my disciples.

 

9-10 “I’ve loved you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at home in my love. If you keep my commands, you’ll remain intimately at home in my love. That’s what I’ve done—kept my Father’s commands and made myself at home in his love.

 

COME AS YOU ARE

by David Crowder, Matt Maher & Ben Glover

 

Come out of sadness
From wherever you've been
Come broken hearted
Let rescue begin
Come find your mercy
Oh sinner come kneel
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can't heal
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can't heal

 

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You're not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are

 

There's hope for the hopeless
And all those who've strayed
Come sit at the table
Come taste the grace
There's rest for the weary
Rest that endures
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can't cure

 

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You're not too far
Lay down your hurt lay down your heart
Come as you are
Come as you are
Fall in his arms
Come as you are
There's joy for the morning
Oh sinner be still
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can't heal
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can't heal

 

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You're not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are

 

Going Deeper with Spirit Filled Living

“Who is the Holy Spirit?”

April 23, 2017

Warm Up:

When you think of the Holy Spirit what comes to mind?

 

Diving In:

  • Read through Acts 1:1-9 and consider the role of the Holy Spirit in the lives of the early believers? In what ways does the Holy Spirit relate to Jesus in this story?
  • When you think about the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit what is the significance to you of God described this way? Is it confusing and if so why?
  • The idea of the Holy Spirit doesn’t just start with Jesus and the early church. There are many Old Testament references that provide us a bigger story that includes the role of the Spirit from the very beginning. Check out some of the following: Genesis 1:1-2, Numbers 27:18, Job 33:4, Psalm 139:7, Zechariah 4:6-9.
  • The term “ruach” is a Hebrew word that is often used for reference to the Spirit in the bible. It literally means “wind” or “breath”. How do these terms help you think about the Holy Spirit?
  • We often use the Trinitarian formula for baptism: We baptize you in the name of the Father your Creator, Jesus Christ your Saviour, and the Holy Spirit your Friend and Enabler….what does it mean for you to refer to the Holy Spirit as your friend and enabler?
  • What does the following quote say to you about the Holy Spirit?

 

“Many people feel so pressured by the expectations of others that it causes them to be frustrated, miserable and confused about what they should do. But there is a way to live a simple, joy-filled, peaceful life, and the key is learning how to be led by the Holy Spirit, not the traditions or expectations of man.” Joyce Meyer
