The Spirit-formed life defines the normal Christian life as conceived by our Lord Jesus Christ. It is the kind of life, experience and witness that is described in the book of Acts.
The steps forward to the Holy Spirit-formed life are clearly set forth in God’s Word:
FIRST: Be Spirit - ______________________. (Acts 2:38, 39)
SECOND: Be Spirit - ________________ . (Acts 1:5-8; 2:1-4)
THIRD: Be Spirit - _________________ . (Romans 12:1, 2; Acts 2:42, 46, 47)
The call and vocation of the People of the Spirit is a commission to Spirit-filled _________________, but also Spirit-formed ______________________________.
The whole of life is to be lived and formed in and by the Holy Spirit—He sets the _________________________, sets the ____________, brings _____________________ and ___________________ to our lives.
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?
