The Holy Spirit Teaching

What is your relationship with the Holy Spirit like?

Looks nice, but no real life?

Still figuring out how to get plugged in?

The connection is there, but still fragile?

A bit confused?

Still need to be plugged in?

His power is coursing through your body?

How would you introduce the Holy Spirit to the class?

John 13:33 - My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.

John 13:36 - Simon Peter asked him, “Lord, where are you going?” Jesus replied, “Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later.”

John 14:1 - Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.

John 14:5-6 - Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:10 - Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.

John 14:16-18 - And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever– 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 in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
