3 Part 1 Introducing the Helper
The Holy Spirit is personal The Holy Spirit is a unifying power of the Trinity Is Crist in you or is Christ beside you? Does anyone come to know God, except through the power of the Spirit? “I now know that God Himself had carefully planted the curiosity in me” Catherine Marshall – page 11 – The Helper Creator Redeemer Sustainer 1 Corinthians 12:1-3 3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.

5 The Holy Spirit is a person, a “he,” and a Helper. John 16: 5–15
1. The Holy Spirit knows us in our weakness The Holy Spirit not only knows us, but He helps us in our weakness . (Romans. 8:26). 4. The Holy Spirit reveals Jesus’ purpose for us God gives good gifts. He gave us Jesus, who died on the cross for our sins.. He gave us the Holy Spirit. He also gave us instruction in the Bible for living this life (2 Tim. 3:16–17). 2. The Holy Spirit teaches us The Holy Spirit works through Scripture and people to change our hearts . (John 14:26; Romans 8:14; 1 Cor. 2:6–14). 5. The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin John 15:8–11 teaches us that the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin to conform us to Jesus’ likeness. As we lean more on the Holy Spirit, sin becomes more apparent in our lives (Gal. 5:16, 18). 3. The Holy Spirit works through prayer The Holy Spirit will intercede for us through prayer (Rom. 8:26). He will especially intercede when we’re focused on glorifying Christ and loving his people.

Baptism OF the Spirit = Bestowal of Gifts Acts 11: Corinthians 12:4-13 (Not repeated – experienced at conversion) Baptism IN the Spirit Outward immersion into the reality of the Spirit.

8 Gifts of the Spirit 1 Corinthians 12: 4-11
no one can say “Jesus is Lord” except in the Holy Spirit. 4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5 and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; 6 and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. 7 To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 8 For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.
