Why are Christians not filled with the Holy Spirit?

*Lack of knowledge of the Word of God
*Pride (EGO= Edging God Out)
*Fear of Man (i.e., Peer Pressure)
*Apprehension, Shame, Embarrassment
*Unconfessed Sin
*Love of Worldly Things

Key Verses:

Today's Lesson

How does Jesus intend for us to love others?

We look to His example: how does He love us?

1. He loves us selflessly. Phil. 2:7-8
2. He loves us understandingly. Heb. 4:15-16
3. He loves us forgivingly. 1John 1:9
4. He loves us sacrificially. James 1:12-15; Heb. 12:2

Therefore, we are called to love others selflessly, understandingly, forgivingly, and sacrificially.

This is how people will know His love and want to know Him, too!

Practical love provides motivation: 1John 3:16-18; Gal. 5:22, Gal. 6:8

*Walking in the Holy Spirit*
John 16: 13 He guides us into all truth.
Rom. 8:11 He quickens us.
Rom. 8:14 He reveals His plan for us.
Rom. 15-16 He assures us we are children of God.
1Cor. 12 He equips us with spiritual gifts.
Rom. 8:26 He intercedes for us.
Eph. 1:15 He seals our salvation.

The Believer's Relationship with the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit:
*Baptizes us Acts 1:4-5
Indwells us I Cor. 3:16
*Assures us of our Salvation Rom. 8:16
*Is the earnest of our Salvation; proves the Word is true Eph. 1:13-14

"The Holy Spirit came to carry the evidence of the Bible into the human heart."

In our lives, the Holy Spirit:
*Teaches us, guides us, reminds us what we've learned John 14:26
*Points to Christ John 15:26
*Convicts us of sin, righteousness, and judgement John 16:8-13

We need to be Prayed Up, Filled Up, and Studied Up so we can Speak Up! be continued next week...
