Impact Team Focus: Setup
Main Thought for the Week:
Jesus demonstrated a life with the Holy Spirit by being sent, preaching the good news, calling others into discipleship, and bringing people freedom.
After Jesus ascended, the Holy Spirit was operating in Acts, empowering and emboldining the apostles to preach and pray for others.
The Holy Spirit works in these ways because the Apostles had a mission and purpose that they could not fulfill without help. Believers today have a similar purpose. A significant part of this purpose, for both the Apostles and for modern believers, is the Great Commission. We are to make disciples!
Mark 1:7-8 (NIV)
7 And this was his message: “After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. 8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”
Acts 8:15-17 (NIV)
15 When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, 16 because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on them,and they received the Holy Spirit.
- What things in your past or present make you feel like you have a purpose?
- Do you have a currently purpose greater than your own?
- If yes, are you relying on the Holy Spirit? If no, are you ready to own the purpose that God has for you?
Pray for individual requests in the group, pray for people being reached out to by group members by name, and pray for the growth and health of Grace City.
