I Am Filled with God’s Power

In our current series at Eastbrook Church, “Who Am I?“, we are exploring biblical answers to questions about our identity as human beings. This past weekend I concluded the series by looking at how the Holy Spirit anchors our identity in God, connects us to a broader family, and sends us out with a new sense of mission.

You can view the message video and an expanded sermon outline below. You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.

New Presence of the Holy Spirit (John 14:15-17; Ephesians 1:13-14; 1 Corinthians 6:19)

  • God coming close as a personal presence in us
  • Drawing near like a seal upon the completed work
  • Guarantee like a deposit toward an inheritance
  • Living in us like God dwelling in the Temple

 

New Family with the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:15-16; Galatians 4:6-7)

  • The place of total belonging
  • The security of new family and attachment to Father God through the bond of love

 

New Character from the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:19-25)

  • The fruit of God’s presence vs. the acts of the flesh
  • Taking the invitation of the Holy Spirit into the divine dance

 

New Abilities in the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Romans 12:4-8)

  • Grace gifts that are given as the Holy Spirit desires
  • Grace gifts that are given for the common good of the body of Christ

 

New Calling by the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:7-8; 2:1-4)

  • Moving beyond the cul-de-sace of spiritual experience
  • Moving forward into the mission of God
