Extraordinary Week 2: Empowered to live an extraordinary life!

Speaker: Pedro Erasmus

Worship: During your devotional time or at life group listen to or play this worship song “That’s the Power by Hillsong Worship”. Reflect on the words and how we can trust the Name of Jesus, knowing that we can have healing, breakthrough, and power in His Name to live out our daily lives.

Check-In: Share what has stood out for you as you started to be more aware of and included the Holy Spirit in your daily life.

Bible Readings: John 16:33; Luke 24:49; Acts 4:13 (NCV); Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 3:18; John 14:16,26 (NCV); Romans 8:26 (NCV); Romans 8:11 (NCV); 2 Corinthians 13:14 (MSG); Acts 17:28 (NIV); 1 Chronicles 16:34 (ESV); Psalm 51:1,7,10 (NCV); Mark 4:28.

Preparation and Discussion for Group Time:

  1. We heard a story in the service (Extraordinary Week 2) about how the Holy Spirit led people. Describe a time in your life when you were aware of the Holy Spirit speaking to you about something in your life or leading you to do something. Share with the group about this and how it impacted you.
  2. Read Romans 8:26 (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). According to these scriptures, the Holy Spirit gives us power when we are weak. Share a time when you were weak, hurt, or disappointed and the Holy Spirit gave you the power to overcome your weakness.
  3. Read Acts 4:13 (1 Corinthians 2:4-5). These verses show us how the Holy Spirit gives us the power to share Christ boldly with others. Share with the group:
    3.1. When have you had a conversation with someone, and how the Holy Spirit gave you the words to speak?
    3.2. Who is the Holy Spirit prompting you to boldly share Christ with? What has been holding you back from sharing Christ with them?

    Check out and Prayer: Go around in a circle and ask God to help you experience the power of the Holy Spirit in your life in a deeper way. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you the strength to overcome the weaknesses you shared earlier. Ask the Holy Spirit to put a spirit of hope and peace within you.
