LESSON AIM: To teach teenagers about the Holy Spirit.
CENTRAL TRUTH: To live a life of dominion, you need to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
INTRODUCTION: It is the Holy Spirit who through the Word makes the human Spirit a new creature in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit is present in the New Birth to bear witness with your Spirit that you are a child of God (Rom. 8:14-16)
Evidence of the Holy Spirit:
- Speaking in tongues. Acts 2:4.
- Repulsion for sin. Holy Spirit gives us resistance against desire to sin.
- Effective prayer of life. Rom. 8:26.
- Healing the sick and evangelism. Acts 1:8.
Works of the Holy Spirit:
- Has a will. 1 Cor. 12:11. The Holy Spirit has the ability to inspire gifts.
- Prohibits. Acts 16:6-7. The Holy Spirit guides you on where and where not to go.
- Guides. Acts 16:10.
- Speaks. Acts 8:29.
- Spirit of the Father. Matt. 10:12.
- Teaches. John 14:26.
Emblems of the Holy Spirit:
- The Dove. Matt. 10:16. The Dove is an emblem of purity and harmlessness.
- The Wind. Acts 2:2.
- Acts 2:3; Mal. 3:2.
- John 7:38.
- The Oil. Heb 1:9; Exodus 29:7.
LIFE APPLICATION: When we receive the Holy Spirit the relationship with God is improved even relationship with others.
