Roles of the Holy Spirit
Jesus gave a ton of insight into this new way of interacting with the Spirit, a new relationship that would empower all of God’s people. By looking at Jesus’ words regarding the Spirit, our students will be challenged to see their interactions with the Holy Spirit in a new light.
As you go through this week with your student(s), look for instances to create some dialogue based on the theme of this lesson. Consider discussing the following questions or concepts:
Read: John 16:5-7
Ask: Do you think Jesus’ disciples believed Him when He said, “it is for your good that I am going away”?
Ask: How does Jesus describe the Holy Spirit here?
Read: John 14:25-26
Ask: What do you see in these two verses that the Holy Spirit does? What role is He pictured as playing?
Ask: Why do you think Jesus’ followers would need to be reminded of His words?
Discuss: Have you ever experienced a feeling like the Spirit was “nudging” you, telling you that something you did was wrong? How do you typically respond?
