The Enabler of Spiritual Growth

John 14:16 NASB95
“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;

of

The Holy Spirit is God’s supernatural gift to make experiential, alive, and real the new being we have become.

The Gift

John 7:37–39 NASB95
Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’ ” But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
John 7:
John 7:37–39 NASB95
Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’ ” But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

God’ s greatest gift is the Holy Spirit.

The Function

John 14:16 NASB95
“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;

another- another of the same kind (not a knock off) with the same essence and character of Jesus.

Helper-the one who is called alongside to assist, to enable, to make work.

John 14:26 NASB95
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

All believers are filled with the spirit

Romans 8:9 NASB95
However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.

Jesus promised the Holy Spirit would be fulfilled on Pentecost. (Acts 2)

The D.I.Y.

John 15:5 NASB95
“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

You can not do it yourself

Jesus gave us a helper because we are helpless
You don’t know: what you need
you don’t know: how much damage sin has done

We need to be filled by the Spirit

Ephesians 5
Ephesians 5:14–17 NASB95
For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you.” Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

You can be a Christian and still be sleep

Ephesians 5:18 NASB95
And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit,
ephesian 5:18

To be Filled

Being filled means to be Controlled by the Holy Spirit

Luke 22:31 NASB95
“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat;

Being Spirit filled is process.

The Process

Ephesians 5:18 NASB95
And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit,
Ephesians 5:18–21 NASB95
And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.
ephesian 5:18-
What is the process:
Make Worship a Lifestyle
Take Sunday Home
Walk by the Spirit
Your growth will Show
The faster you walk the faster you grow

You have to walk by the Spirit.
