This week Lead Pastor Gaylon Clark teaches us that the Holy Spirit inside of us is the ultimate multitasker. The Holy Spirit has no saturation point. No bandwidth issues. No point of limited returns. He does all things well even while multitasking!
Small Group Questions
The Multitasking Spirit
1. When did you sense the Holy Spirit speaking to you most during the sermon?
2. Share a time in your life when you were too weak to pray for yourself or when you didn’t know what to pray for. Read Romans 8:26-27 and Hebrews 7:24-25. How does knowing Jesus and the Holy Spirit are praying for you provide comfort when you can’t pray or don’t know what to pray for?
3. Read Luke 4:18-19. The Spirit inspires the church to compassionately address the groups of people Jesus spoke of in this passage. Of the needs mentioned, has God given you a unique call to serve one of these groups of people or some other marginalize group of people? Which group? How are you doing this? How are planning on doing this?
If I don’t have a unique call to serve on of the people groups Jesus mentions in this passage, does that mean I have no responsibility to serve those who have experienced misfortune or mistreatment? Explain.
4. Read Acts 13:52 and Romans 14:17. There is a link between the Holy Spirit and joy in the bible. Joy is the serious business of heaven. If this is the case, why do believers often lack joy? Share as many reasons as you can think of.
5. Read Romans 8:15-16. What do you think is the difference between approaching God as your Daddy (your Abba) as opposed to only approaching him as your King, your God, your boss, etc? Have you experienced the Holy Spirit reminding you that you are God’s child as discussed in verse 16? Does this occur at random times, during joyous times or while enduring difficulty? Explain.
