SERMON: January 10th, 2016 “The Ignored God”

1 Corinthians 2:12 “We have not received a spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.

Today, we were so blessed to start of the message with Lily Humphrey singing “Holy Spirit” by Francesa Battistelli.  Pastor Dave came up with a new word for this year – ‘intellectualize’ – and followed this by the thought that we cannot intellectualize the Holy Spirit – we must experience Him.  He is the ‘ignored God’, we will never be “able to totally comprehend God, for His Thoughts and Ways are higher than our thoughts and ways; but I do believe we can understand Him better as we come into the Holy Presence of His Holy Spirit”.  The Spirit can do so much for us and we are encouraged to read the following verses this week:

  1. we can be born again – John 3:3,5-6
  2. we can have the assurance of salvation – Romans 8:16
  3. we can worship God – John 4:23-24
  4. we can pray effectively – Ephesians 6:18
  5. we can experience joy – Galatians 5:22, Nehemiah 8:10
  6. we can be holy – Galatians 5:16-18
  7. we can understand some of the things of God – 1 Corinthians 2:12-14
  8. we can witness powerfully – Acts 1:8
