The Spirit Of The Holy Spirit

- One of the primary works of the Holy Spirit is to bring men and women into a meaningful encounter with the Risen Christ. Guided by His Spirit, we can truly discover Jesus Christ and develop a genuine relationship with Him if we respond with total surrender and generosity. Soon enough, Christ’s love becomes the center of our lives and saturates us with joy and peace. Hence, when we have had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ by the Spirit’s power, our greatest desire is that our loved ones may also enjoy a similar experience....   [tags: Jesus, Christianity, Holy Spirit, Trinity]

The Holy Spirit and Jesus’ Ministry

- The statement by John, “Baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire,” has an undertone which is connected to a theme which intertestamental Jews held. This idea was not related directly to the Holy Spirit and the work He would have at Jesus’ baptism or in Jesus’ ministry. A question such as, why would an unrelated belief have a connection to the Holy Spirit who was to come in the baptism of Jesus. This belief was the idea that a time of affliction or anguish would take place before the coming of the messiah....   [tags: Holy Spirit Essays]

The Holy Spirit 's Responsibility

- There have been many influences over the past few months that have bloomed into this lesson. They came as bits and pieces that I either heard or witnessed.

I was in church and Jay was leading worship when all of a sudden the light came on and there was a complete picture in my mind.

History Of The Doctrine Of The Holy Spirit

- Summarize Erickson’s overview of the history of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. In early church history little was said about the work of the Holy Spirit. His working was mainly relegated to the inspiration of scripture. Later there were arguments of the Holy Spirit’s position in the Trinity and whether he should be viewed as equal to God the Father and God the Son or subservient to them. Others resisted the idea of emotions or feeling. Many believed that reason and rational proof was the only credible belief system as apposed to the more subjective view of the Holy Spirit with emotion and feeling....   [tags: God, Christianity, Theology, Holy Spirit]

As the church we should partner with the Holy Spirit to continue the work he has started. When we do this we allow the Holy Spirit to do his will in our lives. 2. The Holy Spirit is for everyone.

McLean instructs us to put out of our minds completely the impression that the Holy Spirit did not come into the world until the Day of Pentecost. Possibly the most direct empowerment connection in the Old Testament is Joel 2:28-32. The connection from Old Testament to New Testament is drawn by Peter in Acts 2:17-18.

Joseph was upset but a gentleman, so he planned to quietly divorce her. An angel appeared to him and told him “do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 1:20, NIV)....   [tags: Jesus, Gospel of Matthew, John the Baptist]

Analysis Of ' The ' Of The Holy Spirit ' By F. Scott Fitzgerald

- In this passage Paul expressed that while there may be different levels of understanding amongst the Christians in Corinth, this did not mean there were different kinds of Christians. He began the passage by using his own teachings as a model. In verse 1-5, Paul uses the rhetorical style as he shared his own shortcomings and contrasted them with the fact he spoke purely of Christ. Paul shared that his speech was neither elegant, nor persuasive and he spoke “in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling.” Paul ended the first 5 verses with “that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” This set the stage for the key focus of this passage, which is that true wisdom...   [tags: New Testament, Christianity, Old Testament, Jesus]
