The Blessings of Communion

Worship the Spirit

Ephesians 2:18 In ending this series, we consider that we are to worship all three persons of the Godhead, but our focus in this message is our worship of the Spirit.

Three Warnings

Ephesians 4:29-32 We look at three things the Spirit does for us, and things we need to avoid so that we don’t hinder our Communion with Him.

The Spirit of Supplication

Romans 8:26-27 We examine one more way in which we have communion with the Holy Spirit: He becomes in us the Spirit of supplication, and helps us to pray.

Sealed with the Spirit

Ephesians 1:13-14 The next blessing of this communion with the Spirit we consider is His sealing us: „you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession…„

We Are Children of God

Romans 8:16-17 We look at another facet of communion with the Holy Spirit – „He bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God.„ He not only shows us that He loves us. He shows us the extent of that love: that we would be His children.

God’s Love Revealed

Romans 5:5 We reflect on another work of the Spirit – one more way in which we have communion with Him – He reveals God’s love for us. We come into this world spiritually dead – hating the light, the holy things of God, His Son, His commandments, His people.

He Shall Glorify Me

John 16:14 The work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers consists in drawing attention to Christ and working to glorify Him. This is an element of the communion that believers have with the Spirit.

He Will Remind You

John 14:26 We continue our consideration of our communion with the Holy Spirit, beginning with one of the most general thing He does for us – He will remind us of what Jesus said.

Communion with the Holy Spirit

John 16:7 We consider that since Jesus has completed His work, the Spirit’s presence with believers is better than His continuing physical presence in this world.

The Children of God

1 John 3:1-3 We meditate on the third area in which we have communion with Christ in His purchased grace – the privileges He gives us before God.
