Intro:  What is your favorite thing to do when it is raining outside?


  1. Romans 8:37, John 3:3-5 When we accept Christ we are born again, we are born into a life of salvation and victory found only in Jesus which allows us to conquer everything in our way.
    1. 2 Cor 13:14  God is three in one, God the Father, God the son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit. God will send the Holy Spirit to help us accomplish his will for us here on earth.
      1. 1 Sam 10:6-7 There are three major things that happen in our lives when we are filled with the Holy Spirit.
      2. John 16:8 The Holy Spirit will come as a Convictor. The Holy spirit will convict us of sin, lead us away from what is wrong, keep us from entering into bad relationships, and direct us away from things we are not supposed to do.
    2. 2 Cor 1:3-4 The Holy Spirit will also come as a Comforter, The Holy Spirit will work in us and bring healing to the areas in our lives where we are hurt and wounded.
  2. Acts 1:8, Acts 2:1-4 The Holy Spirit will also come as an Empowerer. The Holy Spirit will fill us with his power so we can accomplish his perfect will here in this world.
    1. Mark 13:11, Isaiah 50:4 The Holy Spirit will anoint us and give us the exact words that we need to say when we preach the word of God and when we go out to evangelize.
      1. John 14:12 The Holy Spirit will also anoint us at times to do miracles, signs, and wonders here on the earth to help lead others around us to repent and believe in God.
      2. 1 Cor 12:8-10 When we are filled by the Holy Spirit we will operate in various gifts of the Holy Spirit. The gifts of the Holy Spirit are given to us so we can grow closer to God and minister to the lost world around us more effectively.
    2. 2 Cor 4:7, Col 1:29 We need to understand that in our own strength we can do nothing! However with the anointing and power of the Holy Spirit we can do incredible exploits for God and we can conquer everything that gets in our way! #Borntoconquer!


  1. Who can give an example of a time when the Holy Spirit convicted you of something wrong    that you were about to do?
  2. Can you share of an experience when you personally saw God do a supernatural miracle? How did this affect your faith in God?
  3. Can you share a testimony of when the Holy Spirit anointed you to overcome fear and do something extremely powerful for God? What were the results of your obedience to God?
  4. Is there something you feel God is calling you to step out and do for him? Is there anything holding you back from obeying Gods call? If so what is it?

End: Pray for those who desire to be filled with the Holy Spirit, Pray for any who need to      accept Christ or rededicate their lives to Jesus, then take requests.
