Phil Bignill continued our Ephesians series by talking about how we can live with the power of the Holy Spirit.
On Sunday Phil talked about how the book of Ephesians was written to a whole church community, rather than to just one person. Share with the group a time that you have seen church community at it’s best?
Read Ephesians 5:15-20 together.
You might like to read it in sections, with different people reading, and pausing to discuss each section. Or you might like to read it all at once and then come back to each section.
Share with the group an experience you’ve had of the Holy Spirit being present in a mundane or boring part of your life.
Does it surprise you when God’s life interacts with your everyday life?
What do you think God wants you to do or change in order that your everyday life is lived for his purposes?
What practices, habits or questions do you use to help you discover where God is at work around you?
Instead of asking, “How much of the Holy Spirit do I have?”, have you ever asked, “How much of me does the Holy Spirit have?”? What conclusion did you come to?
Have you ever tried having a ‘Holy Spirit happy hour’ each day? Did you look forward to it? What was it like?
Pray that for each other, that you will live by the Holy Spirit’s power – listening to him, following him and walking in step with him.
