A Familiar Stranger // To Know, Be Known, & To Be Led By The Holy Spirit

To know, be Known, & to Be Led by The Holy Spirit We ended last week by identifying that the Holy Spirit gives everyone at least one spiritual gift. It’s equally important to know that no gift is an indication of spiritual maturity. The fruit of the Spirit manifesting in love is the measure of spiritual maturity. William Barclay said, “The important issue is not how many gifts I have, but is my life like Christ’s and am I attracting people to Him?” How do we ensure our lives are attracting people to Jesus? It begins by knowing and understanding that we are known by the Holy Spirit. This is where everything good about life begins. Have you ever thought about what it means to be known? It is pretty cool to pause, and picture God saying, “(Insert your name here), I know him/her. They are my son/daughter. I love him/her.” Are you confident this is what God would say about you? This is where we begin today because this is the beginning of being led by the Holy Spirit. “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.” -Romans 8:14-16 (NIV)- Ethos is a life-giving community committed to keeping Jesus at its Center. Our vision is to be with Jesus, become like Jesus, and do what Jesus did so that we may love all people in Jesus' name. EthosOH.com Small Groups: EthosOH.com/Community ServeColumbus.org
