This Sunday we celebrated Pentecost. At home group this week, we will dig deeper into the baptism of the Holy Spirit so that we can all enjoy the blessings of Pentecost.
Read Acts 2:15-18. Upon whom does God intend to pour out His Spirit? What class of people is excluded? What are some of the effects of this baptism in the Holy Spirit?
Read Acts 1:8. What did Jesus say is the purpose of the baptism of the Spirit?
Read Matthew 7:9-13. Multiple choice: what’s the point Jesus is trying to make here, about receiving the Holy Spirit?
- You’ve got to work like crazy for it. But if you try hard enough, it just might happen!
- God only baptizes in the Spirit those who have an exceptional level of personal holiness and sanctification.
- God intends you to be filled with His Spirit, so be encouraged and persevere.
- If you are feeding your kids snakes or scorpions, you’re probably a bad parent.
