The Holy Spirit
4 - Experience and Expression
Ephesians 5.18-6.9

Experience v. Expression

  • The experience is validated by the expression.
  • Grieving the HS is what happens when your identity is not reflected in your activity.

3 Expressions of Spirit’s Filling

Worship (v.19)

  • Horizontal Nature – genuine care for God’s gathered people
  • Vertical Nature – genuine passion for God
  • 3 of 5 participles are here – if we get this, a lot falls into place (big God = smaller problems, smaller problems = more grace/love for people)
  • We give thanks always because God is in control
  • We give thanks for everything because we know God will use it
  • This expression is built on others.
  • Marriage - turning toward one another in sacrifice and submission
  • Parenting - purposeful in your authority and responsive in your obedience from heart
  • Work - productivity goes up, pride goes down
