SEVEN WORKS THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL DO IN OUR LIVES!
In this outline sermon I am listing seven ways in which the Holy Spirit helps us with our daily Christian walk. Many times we look to our own abilities when we need to understand that God has given us a helper in our walk with Him. He gave of Himself in the person of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said that He was not only a comforter but also a helper.
I. The Holy Spirits tries to lead us in our daily walk.

(Rom 8:14 KJV) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
2. He leads us to Christ so that we can receive Him as our personal Saviour.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
II. He will cause fruit to come into our lives.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
III. The Holy Spirit gives us strength for each day we face.
Ephesians 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
A. It is the Holy Spirit that gives our spirit the strength to face:
2. The trials of Life
3. The enemy (temptations)
4. Our work, (our calling)
5.The disappointments and victories.
IV. The Holy Spirit helps us to remember the Word of God.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
A. I know that many times the Holy Spirit brings thoughts and scripture to my mind when I am preaching that I never planned to use.
1. It is because there is someone who needs it.
B. He will help us remember when we are face with people we are trying to win to Christ.
C. He will do it when we face crisis in our lives.
1. His Word always gives us strength to overcome.

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
A. The Holy Spirit searches our hearts.
B. He makes known things that we cannot think.
1. There is a clause, to them that love God.
VI. He helps us understand the Word of God.
1 Corinthians 2: 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

1. There too many wrong things going on in the world that is cause by the spirit of the anti Christ.
2. We need to have our hearts tuned into hear the Holy Spirit.
3. We know the Holy Spirit’s voice as He speaks according to the Word of God. He never goes against God’s Word.
4. I have had people come to me for council just to find out they have been to others. Their problem they said they wanted the Will of God. However, they just wanted someone to agree with them.
a. I always say that the Will of God is God’s Word and the perfect Will of God for our lives is the Word of God.
b. To know God’s Will for our lives we need to read and study it.
VII. He can create in us a life to serve the Lord.

A. We cannot truly serve God without the help of the Holy Spirit.
