It's been a couple of weeks since the last T6 notes was sent out...so I'll take a minute to catch you up to speed on what we've been talking about in youth on Sundays. We just finished up our Supernatural series this past Sunday. What an incredible time of studying God's word and seeing beyond the natural things that happen on a day to day basis in our lives. We started by laying the need for a desperate desire to pursue God. We then moved into Angel and Demons a couple of weeks ago. Just in case you missed the email, here is the handout of what we talked about. We followed up that week by talking about how we must engage in spiritual warfare and God has given us the tools we need. We looked at Ephesians 6 discussed how God has given us weapons such as truth, peace, faith, and salvation to defend our minds. These should then move us to action using our offensive weapons of righteousness, the Bible, and prayer. And then this past Sunday we took a Biblical look at the Holy Spirit. We started with the prophet Joel and his prophecies about the Holy Spirit and went on a journey through John the Baptist, Jesus, and finally the early disciples and their experiences with the Holy Spirit. We talked about how the Holy Spirit gives us power to live, helps us fulfill our purpose within the church through the gifts, and is relevant to us today. In fact...we need the Holy Spirit to be active within our lives! Ephesians tells us to be continually filled with the spirit. Romans reminds us that the Holy Spirit brings life in peace when we allow Him to control our mind. And finally, Galatians lays out the fact that living in step with the Spirit keeps us from fulfilling our evil desires. Check it all out here.
