The Authority of the Spirit
John 3: 1-8
June 9, 2019



I.   The Spirit is sovereign in conversation. John 3:1-8, 1 Corintians 12:3.

II.  The Spirit provides assurance. Romans 8:15-17, 2 Corrinthians 1:22.

III. The Spirit grants understanding. 1 John 2:27.

IV.  The Spirit empowers in the defense of truth. Acts 6:9-10, 1 Corinthians 4:19-20.

V.   The Spirit makes us witnesses in evangelism. Acts 1:8, 4:33, 1 Corinthians 2:3-5.



Questions for reflection:

  • Are you being led and empowered by the holy Spirit?
  • What are the things that may be keeping you from walking in the Spirit the way you should?
  • What do you think would be the most important life-change for you to experience closer communion with the Spirit?
