The Day the Spirit Came

March 12, 2022 / Acts 2:1-4

Acts 2:1-4 (NASB95)

 

#1. The wonder that God would come near to us

This age of the Spirit’s work is a time of great harvest and not of great gloom

 

On the Day of Pentecost, God came not just to be with us but also to live inside of us

 

#2. The way the Spirit comes to us

Acts 2:2-4 (NASB95)

Isa. 28:11 (NASB95)

 

Common misunderstandings about the Spirit’s work:

    • The Spirit coming into our lives is always dramatic

Work and pray for more days like Pentecost, but don’t require every day to be like Pentecost 

    • The Spirit coming always includes speaking in other languages

1 Cor. 12:30 (NASB95)

    • The Spirit comes to us after our salvation

 

    How can we expect the Spirit to come to us?

      • You receive the Spirit into your life when you are born again (sealed, indwelt by the Spirit)
      • You are regularly filled with the Spirit as you continue to submit to Him (filled with the Spirit)

     

    #3. The ministry of God’s Spirit in our lives

    Acts 2:4 (NASB95)

     

    How does God’s Spirit work in our lives?

      • He comforts and encourages us
      • He teaches and guides us
      • He is with us and in us
      • He affirms our salvation
      • He points us to our inheritance
      • He produces spiritual fruit
      • He gives us spiritual gifts  to use in the lives of others
      • He leads us to share God’s Word with others
