Growth Group Discussion Guide

Sermon Response:

(1) What was your primary take-away from the sermon on Sunday? How did the Lord challenge you to apply the truth that you heard?

(2) What is your church background regarding the Holy Spirit’s baptism or filling? (Was it taught? How was it taught? When did you know there were differences among churches regarding the Holy Spirit’s work?)

Study the Word:

(1) Read John 7:37-39. What did Jesus teach us about the Spirit? Are you desperate for the Spirit in your life?

(2) Read Ephesians 5:18-21. What are the marks of a Spirit filled person or church? How can you grow in being filled with the Spirit?

Personal Application:

(1) How can you grow in submitting yourself to the Holy Spirit? Are there areas of disobedience in your life? What steps of obedience can you take this week?

(2) What do you notice most about yourself when you are acting out in the “flesh”? What do you notice most when you are acting out “in the Spirit”? What will it take for you to be more “Spirit-filled” in the future?
