- Jesus describes the Holy Spirit. Which of the following descriptions of the Holy Spirit have special meaning for you? Share your experience with a Holy Spirit who guides, speaks, hears, discloses, glorifies, teaches and reminds us, dwells in us, testifies and convicts. How do these actions of the Holy Spirit define Him as a Person? As God?
- Personal aspects of the Holy Spirit. Why is it important to see the Holy Spirit as a Person rather than as an abstract spiritual force? What are some of the attributes of the Holy Spirit that point to Him as a Person rather than as a spiritual influence? Do you accept the belief that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person? If so, how does that belief affect your relationship with Him?
- More about the personal aspects of the Holy Spirit. Is there something about the actions of the Holy Spirit that makes it harder for us to comprehend Him and relate to Him? What is that? “It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us.” What does that comment (from Acts 15:28) say about the Holy Spirit as a person? Is it possible to talk to the Holy Spirit in a person-to-person manner?
- The Spirit of Truth. Try to describe “truth” as specific and real. Hint: Jesus said (John 14:6) “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” How can truth be a person? How can the Holy Spirit help us develop a deep and personal relationship with Jesus, our Creator and Redeemer? What should we do to receive such a blessing?
- Why does it matter? Two questions are posed in this week’s lesson: (1) How can I as a Christian have more of the Holy Spirit? and (2) How can the Holy Spirit have more of me? Which question comes closer to identifying the Holy Spirit as a divine Person? Can we use the Holy Spirit to help us solve our problems? Be careful with your answer…
