Growth Group Study Guide

Study the Word:

(1) Read Job 33:4, Judges 3:9-10, and Isaiah 63:7-14. How would you describe the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament? How is His ministry in the Old Testament similar to and different from His ministry in the New Testament? Why do you think His ministry changes?

(2) Read Acts 2:1-4 and 2:17-21. How is the Holy Spirit described in Acts 2? How does the event of Pentecost fulfill the prophecy from Joel 2:28-32? Why is it important to understand that the Spirit is a person who indwells all believers and not just a power that operates in the world?

Personal Application:

(1) What has been your experience with the Holy Spirit? Have you had clarity or confusion in your mind when it comes to relating to the Spirit? What does it look like practically to make sure that we don’t ignore the Holy Spirit in our daily lives?

(2) Because of the work of Jesus, the Holy Spirit is now present in the life of every Christian. And yet, we can grieve the Holy Spirit. When is a time in your life that you know you grieved the Holy Spirit? How do we restore our relationship with the Spirit after we have grieved Him?
