Series Summary: There are many things we can try alone but following Jesus is not one of them. Trying to be a Christian on your own is like trying to surf without waves or sail without wind. The good news is that the power we need to follow Jesus is available to all in the form of God, The Holy Spirit.
Changed By The Spirit
Scripture: 1 Peter 1:1-2, 13-16
Core Truth: Our spiritual life begins when God makes us right through Jesus. Our life with God continues as the Holy Spirit changes us day by day to become more like Him. This journey of transformation can only happen by the power of the Spirit and it brings glory to God.
Core Truth: The battle for our freedom has been won by Jesus but if we try to live by our own compass of what we think is right, we will get sucked back into a life of addiction. Learning to live by the Spirit will keep us in the centre of God’s freedom.
Core Truth: No one becomes a Christian because they choose to follow a set of rules. Jesus explains to a religious leader that a person needs to be born again by the Spirit. Only He can make us alive to God and to a whole new life energized by His power.
