--Sunday Morning February 10th  - "The Spirit Creates Community"

Brian Ferry March 2012

 

Text - Acts 4:23-37

Overview - In the vision God gave Ezekiel, God made an exceedingly great army out of lifeless bones. Fast-forward a few hundred years and we see the physical embodiment of the prophecy taking place in a movement continuing until Jesus comes back (i.e. the Church). God brings His people together so that we can be a witness as a community and collectively on mission for Him.

--Sunday Morning February 3rd  - "The Spirit Equips with Spiritual Gifts"

Brian Ferry March 2012

 

Text - John 14:12-14, 16:5-7 / Romans 12:6-8 / 1 Peter 4:10-11

Overview - Jesus said His followers will do greater things than He did in His ministry. This is made possible through the gifts the Spirit has given every believer in order to bring God glory. These gifts empower believers in service (demonstrating His love and power) and speech (proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus).  (Sorry for the audio quality on this one)



As mentioned in the Sermon, here is a link to the best Spiritual Gifts 'Test' I've ever encountered. The link will take you to FBC Nashville's website. Remember that 1) experiences, 2) traits, 3) convictions and 4) observations are crucial to understanding how God has gifted you for His glory.

Text - Ephesians 1:11-14

Overview - How do you know you are born-again? Well, are you sealed with the Spirit? How do you know if you are sealed with the Spirit? Simple, are you able to answer 'yes' to these question: Are you doing the things Jesus wants you to do? In there an assurance of God's Love? Do you cling to the Gospel?

--Sunday Morning January 13th - "The Spirit of Life Gives Life Pt. 1"

Brian Ferry March 2012

 

Text - John 3:1-8

Overview - When God created humanity, Scripture says in Genesis 2 that He breathed life into Adam's nostrils. Without the unseen breath of God, Adam would have been dust. In the same way, the Spirit breaths spiritual life into our souls which are dead from sin. We can not create life in our flesh, only the Spirit of God can give us a rebirth.
