Person, Power, and Presence
8. Still In Circulation
December 5, 2021 • Chris Seidman • 1 Corinthians 12—13, Revelation 1:7, 1 John 3:2, 1 John 4:8, 1 Corinthians 14:1
This weekend is the final (and possibly the most important) message of our series on the Holy Spirit. The thirteenth chapter of 1 Corinthians is often used to speak into marriages, but it’s not really about marriage. It’s about life with the Spirit!
November 28, 2021 • Chris Seidman • 1 Corinthians 15:1–5, 1 Corinthians 12:4–27, 1 Corinthians 1:7
This weekend, we find out what the Holy Spirit has to do with “body-building.” We also explore how the spirits of inferiority and superiority so often get in the way of us growing together in the ways and work of the Holy Spirit.
November 21, 2021 • Chris Seidman • 1 Corinthians 12—14, Romans 12:6–8, Romans 4:8–10, 1 Corinthians 15:1–4, Hebrews 2:4
Do you have a Christmas gift list? Did you know there’s such a thing as a Spirit gift list? And did you know you can ask for the gifts on the list? We’re spending some time in 1 Corinthians 12-14 over the next couple of weekends. We’re called to be more than open to the ways the Holy Spirit operates in our lives. We’re called to eagerly desire and pursue such things by the grace of God. Let’s grow together!
5. The Deposit
November 14, 2021 • Chris Seidman • Matthew 12:28, Luke 11:2–13, 2 Corinthians 1:21–22, 2 Corinthians 5:5, Ephesians 1:13–14
One of the most common references to the Holy Spirit in Scripture is as a “deposit.” This has implications both for our attitude and our mindset about the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives today, but also how the work of the Spirit points us to a future day.
3. Expect Different
October 31, 2021 • Chris Seidman • John 5:19, Philippians 2:6–7, Acts 1:8, 2 Timothy 1:8, Galatians 3:5
This weekend, some will be challenged and stretched by this particular part of the series. We are considering the power of the Holy Spirit. The power of the Spirit doesn't always work to get us out of a jam, or make our life easier or more comfortable. The One who walked in it more than anyone else ever has — Jesus — still had a cross in His future. But He also had a resurrection! The power of the Spirit was involved in both. (see Hebrews 9:14 and Romans 8:11)
1. The Gift
October 17, 2021 • Chris Seidman • Acts 1:4–8, Acts 2:37–39, 2 Corinthians 3:17, John 6:63, John 16:7
This weekend we begin a new series: Holy Spirit: Person, Power, and Presence. We’ll consider what Scripture has to tell us about the reality, mystery, and practical need for the Spirit of God in our lives. By God’s grace, we’ll grow in our understanding of what it means to be a Spirit-led people with Spirit-empowered lives.
