WALKING WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

  1. LOVE ME and ACCOMPANY ME all the days of my life.

 

John 14:16-18 

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[c] in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

 

GOD LOVES ME, GOD IS WITH ME, HE IS FOR ME, KEEP WALKING

 

 

  1. GUIDE ME in the path and TEACH ME all things.

 

John 14:26

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 

Romans 8: 12-14 

12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.

14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.

 

  1. HELP ME in my weakness and INTERCEDE for me, so I can live God’s purpose

 

Romans 8:26-27

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

 

  1. REMAIN in His will and purpose, all the days of my life.

 

Romans 8:15 

The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to son ship. And by him we cry, “Abba,[b] Father.”

 

Galatians 5:22-25 

 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

WALKING IN TRUTH

DECLARATION

 SHARE THE POST

I. WHEN YOU WALK IN TRUTH YOU PROSPER IN EVERYTHING.

a. 3 John 1:2-4 (NASB) – 2  Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and

be in good health, just as your soul prospers.  3  For I was very glad when brethren

came and testified to your truth, that is, how you are walking in truth.  4  I have no

greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth.

i. Walking in Truth is the Key

1. TRUTH = Knowing God’s Character and God’s Plans, Revealed

through His Word.

ii. Have you ever thought you were right – And found out you are wrong

1. Ex. Orlando exit – one exit, if it is wrong ½ delay

a. One missed exit can delay your arrival…

b. Proverbs 14:12 (NIV) – There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it

leads to death.

i. One of the worst things is to be wrong and not know it = DECEIVED

1. Ex. Partying Benefits – mistaken

2. Ex. My Children – Mistaken about the benefits of not listening to

Parents.

ii. Living in deception is living a lie

iii. So, who’s been lying to you?

iv. SAY WITH ME…– “The Devil is a Liar”

II. THE DEVIL IS A SPECIALIST IN CREATING LIES AND FALSE TRUTHS.

a. John 8:44 – 44  You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your

father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth,

for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a

liar and the father of lies

b. No truth in him – Lies about anything and everything.

i. EX. Lies about Identity, Pleasure, & Purpose

1. Identity – based on likes, shares, hearts

2. Pleasure – If I only had “IT” I would be better off

3. Purpose – That’s will never work…

c. His Deception is for Separation

i. If you don’t know truth, you can’t walk in it, and You can never prosper.

III. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE SOURCE OF EVERY TRUTH.

IV. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR GUIDE INTO EVERY TRUTH.

a. John 16:7 – 7  But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away.

Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to

you.

i. By very truly = I’m not playing, “Ya’ll aint ready”

ii. For your good = The Holy Spirit is the better portion coming to you.

1. “Say it ain’t so.”

b. John 16:13-15 – 13  But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all

the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he

will tell you what is yet to come.  14  He will glorify me because it is from me that he

will receive what he will make known to you.  15  All that belongs to the Father is

mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to

you.”

i. Trinity Positioning – Father in Heaven, Jesus sitting on His Right, Holy

Spirit Here.

1. Father and Son like – Tell the Kids we love them, hung them and tell

them some truth.

ii. HE will Guide = implies a process PULL SOMEONE UP.

1. Ex. “Lead someone from your need to your knees”

iii. He will make you KNOW so you can WALK and TALK to

GLORIFY HIM, if you learn to Have a Relationship with the Holy Spirit.

V. JESUS SAVES US AND GIVES US THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND THE HOLY

SPIRIT GIVES/BRINGS US BACK TO JESUS.

a. John 14:6 6  Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one

comes to the Father except through me.

i. The Spirit Reveals the Truth = The Spirit reveals to us Jesus.

b. We must be committed to the guidance, as a Church we open the door for H.S.

i. Mark 8:34-35 – 34  Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples

and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take

up their cross and follow me.  35  For whoever wants to save their life will lose

it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.

ii. Connect – Grow – Lead – Serve

VI. CLOSE – HE IS JEALOUS FOR us.

a. James 4:5 – 5  Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs

for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us?

i. He Longs = he desires, he pursues with love

ii. He’s Jealouse = Because the world and the ways of this world

have had TOO MUCH of our attention for far TOO LONG.

b. We have sought to be wanted, appreciated, approved…

i. By a woman, a man, a mom/dad, a boss a pastor

c. How great it is to know you are wanted…..

i. IF WE COME TO KNOW HIM INSTEAD OF JUST KNOWING

ABOUT HIM YOUR LIFE WILL FOREVER BE CHANGED.

d. I want to invite you to Know Him today.
