GIVER OF LIFE
Part 1 of a series on the Holy Spirit. In this message, Parker unpacks the Hebrew concept of “spirit,” establishes a working understanding of the Holy Spirit, and starts us thinking about the practical difference the teaching of the Spirit makes.
HELPER AND SANCTIFIER OF SOULS
The word for “spirit” in Hebrew refers to the individual human will, and Scripture is clear: something is wrong with our spirit. But God, in his mercy, sends his own Spirit to us to transform our will.
POWER OF GOD
When the Holy Spirit comes on a believer, they are empowered to live wisely in the world, restore order to creation, and speak prophetically. This message looks at each of these in turn.
SPIRIT OF UNITY
The church is the sum total of all humans who bear the Holy Spirit, but often we expect that everybody who has the Spirit will come to a consensus on just about everything. But the book of Ephesians sets a different expectation: that those who share a unity of the Spirit will actually not have a unity of the faith until the day Jesus returns. Diversity in the church is something Jesus himself anticipated. In spite of the diversity, however, bearers of the Spirit will share some core convictions about Jesus.
QUESTION & RESPONSE, PART 1
Over the course of this Holy Spirit series, we collected questions from the congregation pertaining to the Spirit. In this message, Parker responds to a handful of those questions. This is the first of two Question & Response messages.
QUESTION & RESPONSE, PART 2
In this final message on the Holy Spirit, Parker addresses three questions: What is the role of baptism in salvation? What’s the deal with the Spirit coming at the laying on of hands? And, have the miraculous gifts ceased?
