LESSONS ON THE HOLY SPIRIT
IN STEP: TRUE SPIRIT-FILLED COMMUNITY
True community thrives as we keep in step with God’s Spirit.
Four lessons on true community to help us keep in step with God’s Spirit:
- WATCH OUT — SELFISHNESS DESTROYS IT
THE DANGER GOD POINTS OUT (15)
- TAKE STEPS — IT’S ANYTHING BUT NATURAL
THE DIFFICULTY GOD DESCRIBES (16-18)
- BE CLEAR — IT STANDS OUT
THE DIFFERENCE GOD MAKES (19-24)
- LEAN IN — IT’S FOCUSED NOT ON GETTING, BUT ON GIVING
THE DIRECTION GOD GIVES (25-26)
- When did you last deeply experience true Spirit-filled community?
- What often keeps us from experiencing true community?
- What are some current difficulties facing our church family?
- What natural fleshly tendencies do you have to fight; & what fruit of God’s work have others seen in your life?
- What are some ways you are tempted to sinfully desire things from others and what are some ways can give towards community instead?
