  • Pastor Alistair

Doug Snook

  • Would like to thank all who have prayed for him over the past year regarding his cancer treatment.
  • He now has been given an excellent nil report.
  • He monitors church attendance & is this church’s historian.

Recap last week:

  • The narrow path
  • On this path the Spirit is found!

What does the Holy Spirit do?

  • Encourager, Counsellor, Teacher, Guidance, Comforter, Trainer, Convictor (Convincer?), God with us, Helper, Answer and Provider
  • (Answers from the audience)
  • Whatever Jesus did for his disciples, the Holy Spirit wants to do for you.

Let’s be honest:

  • When Jesus did strange and unusual things (miracles of healing, but through odd means e.g. spit into mud) we are comfortable with this.
  • But if the Holy Spirit does these things today, we are uncomfortable with this.

John 14:26

  • “He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.”

He wants to:

  • Show you – bring to mind things that were and could be
  • Speak to you – about what you should be doing
  • Send you out – to do what you should

Questions to ask yourself

  1. How teachable are you?
  • We all need to be teachable and then the Spirit can use us.
  • We often aren’t as teachable as we might think.
  1. Are there sins that you wish you’d stop doing for the past 10 years?
  • This is a reflection of how teachable you are.
  1. Has your faith grown in the last year, and in what ways?
  • What steps have you taken?
  • Again, this reflects your teachability.

The Spirit will never disappoint you.

  • Jesus never disappointed his disciples.

Isaiah 30:21

  • And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, “This is the way, walk ye in it,” when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
