We often go through life simply hoping our routines and comforts aren’t shaken too much. But this only creates, at best, a purposeless and mundane life. But Jesus promised something so much better. We can know the true purpose of our lives. It all starts with knowing the true purpose of the Holy Spirit.
[01:44] We can’t experience a life of purpose when we don’t know the real purpose of our lives.
[02:44] Knowing the purpose of the Holy Spirit reveals the purpose of our lives.
[10:53] God kept his promise to be with his people again by sending the Holy Spirit.
[12:45] The purpose of the Holy Spirit is to give life to a new people who will show the world the life Jesus offers.
[14:34] The Holy Spirit has made the Church the new temple of God made up of new individual temples of God.
[17:52] A life filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit is a taste of humanity’s future now.
[18:55] The Spirit is God’s own personal presence in our lives and in our midst. – Gordon Fee
[22:42] The purpose of the Holy Spirit is to bring the life of God to the world through the life of God’s people.
[20:00] Goal for this week…
