The Mission of the Holy Spirit

holy spirit rotatorI concluded our series on the Holy Spirit this weekend at Eastbrook Church with a message from on “The Mission of the Holy Spirit.”

While there are so many things that we could highlight related to the Holy Spirit, I wanted to pull us back into the central mission and aim of the Holy Spirit in our world.

You can listen to my message at the Eastbrook web-site here. You can also follow the RSS feed for Eastbrook sermons or follow Eastbrook Church on Twitter or Facebook. A slightly revised message outline is included below:

About Him: The Holy Spirit’s Mission to Draw Attention to Jesus (John 15:26-271 John 5:11-12)

  • What does it mean to ‘testify’?
  • What is the ‘testimony’?

About Us: The Holy Spirit’s Mission to Send out God’s People – the Church (John 15:2720:21-23)

  • Compelled to testify
  • Compelled by divine presence
  • Compelled by divine power
  • Compelled by divine grace
  • Compelled beyond human limitations

About Them: The Holy Spirit’s Mission to Reach People Far from God (Acts 1:8)

  • Jerusalem
  • Judea
  • Samaria
  • The Farthest Reaches of the World
