BEFORE & AFTER

The Holy Spirit changes how we relate.  In life, we think of situations as black and white (and maybe some things are gray), but the Holy Spirit thinks in colors (not just primary colors, but all of the colors…and in colors human eyes can’t see, cant’ fathom, and can’t express words for).  This is why people say things like “nothing is impossible with God.”  The Holy Spirit then helps us to live under Jesus’ Lordship; He teaches us how to experience the healed life, the holy life, the abundant life that Jesus promised.  God, the Holy Spirit makes impossible things possible for Christians!

WEEK 1 - MAY 8, 2016
"the spirit changes...family"
ephesians 5:18-21; 6:1-4
KEVIN BOYD

         Reaching our potential as parents, balancing: not exasperating them and disciplining and teaching them takes Spirit-filled parents.  It requires me having a real relationship with God the Holy Spirit, talking with Him, asking Him for help, and trusting His power to balance truth and grace in my home and keep our priorities straight. 


 

WEEK 2 - MAY 15, 2016
"THE SPIRIT CHANGES...MARRIAGE"
EPHESIANS 5:18-33
KIRK GENTZEL

We ought to be reminded today that the gospel is meant to take root in our homes, not just in our heads. When the Holy Spirit enters the home, the relationship between husband and wife transforms from adversary to ally. When the Holy Spirit enters the home, the relationship between the husband and wife isn’t just about personal fulfillment, but instead gospel reenactment.


 

WEEK 3 - MAY 22, 2016
"THE SPIRIT CHANGES...conflict"
EPHESIANS 6:10-17
Kevin boyd 

Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words.  Learn how to apply them.  You'll need them throughout your life.

God the Holy Spirit will help place this armor on your mind & across your chest…to protect your thoughts & your heart.  He’ll change the way you do conflict, and He’ll guide you to wear your armor well so that you may stand & walk in the newness of life.

 


 

WEEK 4 - MAY 29, 2016
"THE SPIRIT CHANGES...Work"
EPHESIANS 6:5-9
KEVIN BOYD

God (who's a worker) made humanity in His image (as workers) and Adam and Eve were working in the garden of Eden...and everything was really good.  THEN SIN.  Sin did to work what it did to communication and to relationships.  Sin damaged work.  Paul is telling us that the Holy Spirit can change it back; He can make it beautiful and glorious again!
