Extraordinary – Week 4: Filled with the Holy Spirit!

Speaker: Daniel Erasmus

Worship: During your devotional time or at life group listen to or play this worship song “Make Room by Kim Walker-Smith” Reflect on the words, and surrender the barriers that hold you back to all that God wants and has for you.

Check-In: Share the next step you have decided to take or the change you want to make since doing the spiritual gifts assessment.

Bible Readings: 1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:26-27; John 20:19-22; Luke 24:36, 49; Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 2:41; Matthew 10:32-33; Acts 8:5-12; 14-17; 1 John 5:7-8; Act 2:38-39; Romans 12;1-2 (MSG); Luke 11:43; Ezekiel 47:3-5, 9.

Preparation and Discussion for Group Time:

  1. Ps Daniel shared 4 practices that we can do as we daily ask the Holy Spirit to come and fill us.
    1.1. Remove the barriers – repentance (Acts 2:38-39)
    1.2. Request the gift of the Holy Spirit – ask (Romans 12:1-2 MSG)
    1.3. Receive Him by faith – surrender control (Ezekiel 47:3-5, 9)
    1.4. Relate to Him daily – in every aspect of our lives.
    Share with the group any barriers that are holding you back from trusting, asking, surrendering, and allowing the work of the Holy Spirit in your daily life.
  2. Baptism is a step of obedience and a public declaration of our commitment to God. Go around the circle and share your Baptism story with the group. If you haven’t yet taken this step on your discipleship journey use this template to share your story and consider signing up to take this step.
  3. What has the Holy Spirit made you more aware of in the past 4 weeks, as we heard about who and what the Holy Spirit does when we ask to be filled and empowered to live out our daily lives?

Check out and Prayer: As you check out, set up a time of worship. Share what has been highlighted from tonight’s discussion as you considered the next step you need to take. Then take time to pray and ask for the Holy Spirit to fill you!

Love God:
Memory verse: Rom 12:1-2 (NIV) “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, this is your true and proper worship”.
