Sunday Sermons: "Glimpses of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament" and "Love"

The other day I was thinking how I could use this blog as an outreach to others. Then I realized, our congregation puts recordings of the Sunday morning and evening sermons on the church website! If you are interested in listening to any of our archived sermons click here. There are sermons from September 2006 to the present.

The topic of this morning's sermon was "Glimpses of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament." Unfortunately, it didn't record properly, so I've decided to share my notes. They're a bit scattered since I'm the only one that uses them, but at least the scripture references will be there :-)

Glimpses of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament

Genesis 1:1, 26
Genesis 11:7

There is one God, but 3 parts: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit

Jesus is distinct from the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 12:31, 32
John 5:22

There are some things God just can't do
~Sin  ~Be tempted with evil

The Father in Heaven is God
Ephesians 1:3
John 1:1, 14

Jesus is God

The Holy Spirit is God
Acts 5:4, 9
Genesis 1: 1, 2
John 1:3-5

What does it mean that "the Spirit of God Hovered over the waters" ?
~Some say the Spirit "finished" the creation.

Ephesians 3:10-13 God's eternal purpose of Salvation

We read of people, in the Old Testament, being filled with the Holy Spirit
~Joel: in the latter days, the Spirit will be poured over all mankind
Exodus 31 : Craftsman of the tabernacles
Micah 3:8
Luke 1:15 Elizabeth pregnant with John

Isaiah 11:1-9, 10-11
Isaiah 10:5
Romans 15: 7-13

Since it's the fifth Sunday, we have a fellowship meal and a devotional afterwards, in place of our evening worship. The devotional is usually lead by a guest speaker or one of the men of the congregation. Today my brother delivered it :-) He's leaving in August for preaching school, so the practice is good for him :-) He did a great job!

Unfortunately, I'm having problems pulling it up right now :-( But thankfully, I have my notes :-)

Who are we supposed to be?

Acts 11

What does it mean to be a Christian?

James 2:19-20
John 14:15
Matthew 22:36-40

Who is my neighbor? Anyone we come in contact with.

What does it mean to love?

1 Corinthians 13:2-13


  1. Very cool Lur! Yes, Rodge did an outstanding job! He was definitely meant to be a preacher. ;)
