The Work of the Spirit, Part 2 

  • The Convicting Work of the Spirit, A Recap
  • The Guiding Work of the Spirit
  • The Glorifying Work of the Spirit  

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read John 16:4-15. Why would Jesus say it is “advantageous” to his followers for him to depart? Why might we not believe or live like this is to our advantage?
  2. Consider four NT commands related to the Holy Spirit: Gal. 5:16, Eph. 4:30, Eph. 5:18, & 1 Thes. 5:19. How do these commands with the teaching of Jesus in John 16?
  3. What is the guiding work of the Spirit? Did the apostles experience this in a different way than we experience it? What place does Scripture have in the guiding work of the Spirit (see Eph. 6:17-18)?
  4. How is the Spirit working in your life? Give thanks for God’s gracious gift of the Spirit to you.
