What the Apostle Paul Teaches About the Holy Spirit

Released November 12, 2020 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


The call of the Father for all of those who have believed upon His Son is to walk in the Spirit. The Christian life is not primarily intellectual or emotional. It is relational. We Christians are to do life with God. How do we accomplish this? We have God the Spirit alive within us. As we grow in knowing Him, experiencing Him, submitting to Him and enjoying Him, life as a Jesus-follower takes on an incredible dynamic that ruins us for dead religion and cultural Christianity. We become alive in the Holy Spirit. While Jesus said more about the Holy Spirit than anyone else in the New Testament, the Apostle Paul instructs us specifically on what it means to be regenerated by the Spirit, led by the Spirit, filled with the Spirit, gifted by the Spirit and transformed in the Spirit. You may have experienced countless encounters in the Holy Spirit, but can God use you to help those who have been wrongly taught that the supernatural working of the Holy Spirit has ceased? In this episode, Jeff challenges all believers to know what they believe about God the Spirit…and why they believe it. Experience alone is not enough. We can know what Scripture says about the working of Holy Spirit so that we can be equipped and empowered to help those who have been taught by religion never to expect much from Him. This is the second episode in our mini-series that is focusing on the person and work of the Spirit of God. Reference: Romans 8
