On Sunday, January 1, 2023 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on John 14-16.  This message was part 7 in the “God with us” sermon series.  Below you will find questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion.  You will also find the audio and video of the message to listen to/watch, download, or share.

Sermon Questions:

  1. Pray
  2. As you end this Christmas season, what are you sad to “pack up”?  Is there anything God taught you this season that you want to “keep out” the rest of the year?
  3. The Holy Spirit inside us is a wonderful promise that Jesus makes to His followers as He ascends to heaven.  Have you ever felt like an “orphan” or alone in this world?  How does this promise encourage you today?
  4. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, the Spirit of God is in you and with you as you enter your home, school, work, neighborhood, etc.  How might God want to use you in those environments this year?
  5. In the year ahead, make a commitment to begin your bible study with a simple prayer asking the Spirit of Truth to guide you into a correct understanding of what you are reading.  What role has prayer played in your Bible study in the past?
  6. How does knowing the Spirit is in you encourage you to faithfully share witness of Jesus to those around you who do not know Him?
  7. The Spirit empowers us toward obedience.  What area of your spiritual life/moral life would you like to grow in obedience to Jesus more in the year ahead?
  8. What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
