PNEUMATIKOS: People Of The Spirit - Part 7 - January 13th, 2019

 

Partaking of The Person of The Promise

 

Text: Matthew 14:22-33

 

The invitation is mine to partake of the Person of the Promise myself.  I can now come to Jesus and ask the One who fills with the Holy Spirit, to fill me. 

 

Some things to consider with this invitation…

 

First: Jesus ____________________ me to be filled. (John 20:22; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8)

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Second: Jesus wants to do ________________ through  me. (John 14:12)

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Third: This is the ___________________ to the gifts of the Spirit. (John 16:14; 1 Corinthians 12:7-13)

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

 

As I come to be filled—to be a Person of the Spirit, I am considering the following instructive steps from the text…

 

     STEP ONE: “______________________________” (v.22)

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

     STEP TWO: “ _____________________________” (v.27)

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

     STEP THREE: “____________________________” (v.28)

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

     STEP FOUR: “ ____________________________” (v.29)

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Digging Deeper: My Personal Reflections...

Engage the text: Ask questions to see what answers the Scriptures provide: who, what, when, where, and how?

Know the text: What's the meaning for the original audience and then what is the meaning for me?

Listen, let the text speak: What is the Holy Spirit saying to me?

Meditate on the message: take note of what word or phrase stands out to you. Come back to that word or phrase throughout the day, being present to its impact and invitation.

Live in light of the text: Being: what does this say about my identity?  Doing: what are some actions for me to obey this week in order to maximize the impact of this message?

Share: If you were to share with a friend, in a sentence or two, a key insight from today’s message, what would that be?
