Our topic for this series is “The God of Missions.” The overarching question is “What does a study of God teach us about missions?” We will approach the answer to that question inductively by looking at passages related to a specific question and seeking to draw a conclusion from those passages.
We’ve spent time thinking about being filled with the Spirit and being taught by the Spirit. One aspect of the Spirit’s sanctifying ministry to believers remains: being “led by the Spirit.” In order to understand that ministry, it’s important to distinguish between leading and guidance.
“‘Witness' is a noun before it’s a verb.”
It took a minute to sink in, but once it did I knew exactly what Mr. Tom Henry was saying. Mr. Henry works with an international outreach ministry and shared a perspective on missions in chapel that I’ve never heard before.
What happens when a person is “filled with the Spirit”? Is it an experience we are to seek? Is it possible to be “un-filled”? Are there pre-requisites to being filled? Should we pray to be filled? What, precisely, does the NT have to say about being filled with the Spirit?
