The Church & The Spirit


How do we enter into the story? In this final session about the Scriptural story we see how God gives the Holy Spirit to empower the church at Pentecost. It is not enough to simply know the story; we must also live the story. The Holy Spirit empowers us to participate in the story and God’s work of redemption in the world.

Episode outline

  • Participants—The Holy Spirit makes it possible for us to be more than observers or spectators of the story.
  • Renewed—The Spirit gives us a renewed mind, a renewed life, and adopts us into the triune family of God.
  • The Church—Just as Jesus ascends and the Spirit descends, the church also moves in two directions—the Spirit binds Christians together and missionally sends them out.
  • Continuation—The Spirit moves the story through the centuries and across geographies.

Sample discussion questions

  • When have you felt you went from being a spectator to being a participant—from just knowing about the Biblical story to being “pulled through the frame”?
  • Why was Pentecost significant for the early church? What is the role of the Holy Spirit in the early church and today?
  • How do you feel about the Holy Spirit? How vital is life in the Spirit for living the Christian life?
