The Ultimate Priority - Worship . . . Part 5

WORSHIPPING THE HOLY SPIRIT         Page 2

The Holy Spirit's role in:

Creation - Genesis 1:1-2, Isaiah 45:18

Baptism - Matthew 28:19

Help - John 14:16-17, 25-26

Conviction - John 16:7-11

Fellowship - 2Corinthians 13:14

Seals - Ephesians 4:30

Understanding that the Holy Spirit has a vital role in our lives, let's see how we can best worship Him...

As the apostle Paul penned this marvelous epistle, he was dealing with those who named the name of Christ, but were trying to add to the finished work of Jesus with their own ability to keep the Law. Let's read Galatians 3:1-3 together.

Now, on our way back to 5:22, let's stop at Galatians 5:16-18.

V.16 ** What will completely, even totally, keep us from carrying out the desires of the flesh?

If we will only and always "walk by the Spirit".

V.17 ** But what is the problem we face, as we strive to do just that?

The flesh won't give up! It "sets its desire against the Spirit..." There is a war going on inside all of us, even inside the apostle Paul. cf. 1Corinthians 9:26-27

V.18 ** Saying it a different way, what removes us from being under [the curse of] the Law?

If we "are led by the Spirit..."

** What added dimension does this affix to the concept of walking by the Spirit?

The fact that He is God, and as such is leading us, and we are expected to follow His lead!
cf. Romans 8:3-4, 14

Alright then, let's worship the Holy Spirit by following His lead into the very holiness of God as it is being produced in us each day of our lives!
