THE MESSAGE

THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

1.CONVICTION

John 16: 8-11 , I Corinthians 12:3

The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin . People may criticise us. The world may condemn us. But these are not the most important voices for us to listen. The convicting voice of the Holy Spirit is the most important voice that we must listen to. Even in soulwinning we must depend on the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to make people realise their need of Christ. This will be more effective than all our words of condemnation and ridicule.

2.CONFIDENCE

Acts 1: 8 , II Timothy 1: 7

The Holy Spirit gives us supernatural boldness. In these days

when we face so many fearful situations we must depend on the

boldness given by the Holy Spirit. This will help us to witness

fearlessly for Christ.This will also help us to face difficult

situations with confidence.

3.COMFORT

John 16:7 , Acts 9: 31

The Holy Spirit is a comforter. The Early Church faced so much

persecution and martyrdom. But they did not lose their zeal for

the Lord because they were constantly comforted by the Holy Spirit.Today we need the same experience to serve God with zeal

and enthusiasm in the midst of great trials and tribulations.

4.COUNSEL

John 16: 13 , I John 2 : 27

The Holy Spirit gives us counsel and direction.He leads us into

all truth. The early church was constantly guided by the Holy

Spirit.Today the church must be led by the counsel of the Holy

Spirit. The devil is constantly developing strategies and devices

to attack and destroy the church. To counter this attack our

human plans and wisdom will not be sufficient. We need the counsel

of the Holy Spirit.

5.CONFLICT

Isaiah 59 : 19 , Isaiah 10 : 27

The Holy Spirit helps us in our battles and conflicts. We are

in an intense spiritual warfare. Even our natural and physical

battles often has a spiritual cause behind it.Therefore the

church needs to fight these battles not in human strength but

with the power of the Holy Spirit.

6.CREATION

Gen 1 : 2 , Romans 5: 5 , Galations 5: 22-23

The Holy Spirit brooded over the waters before the work of creation took place. The hen broods over the egg and a work of

creation takes place inside the egg. In the same way when we

allow the Holy Spirit to brood over our lives a work of creation

takes place.The fruit of the Spirit is developed in our lives.

This is a desperate need in the church today. The people of God

must reveal the character of God in their lives.

7.COMMUNION

John 4: 23-24 , Romans 8 : 26-27

The Holy Spirit helps us to have communion with God. God is a

spirit. Therefore communion with God is a spiritual communion.

Therefore we need the Holy Spirit to help us have a deep fellowship with God. Without a deep and intimate fellowship with

God we cannot do anything of eternal value. All our religious

activities will be in vain if they done without divine sanction.

The church should become intimate with God and be filled with

a divine love.God longs primarily for a deep relationship with

his children. The Holy spirit helps us to come close to God.
