3. The Holy Spirit is your Advocate

You are able to know and trust Jesus as your saviour because of the work of the Holy Spirit. He works in complete unity with the Father and the Son to achieve God’s purpose in you.

What the Spirit does Passage To discuss
 God promised in the Old Testament that He would send the Holy Spirit. Joel 2:28-32 What will be the ultimate result of God sending His Spirit?
Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit, and gives the Spirit to you. John 1:29-34 What is the significance of the Spirit descending and remaining on Jesus?
The Holy Spirit is the one who enabled you to recognise that you are a sinner and see what Jesus did for you. John 16:7-15 What three things does the Holy Spirit convict people of? How do they relate to what Jesus has done?
The Holy Spirit applied all that Jesus did to you, to save you from sin and death. Titus 3:3-7 Why do you think the work of the Spirit here is described as ‘washing’?
You can know the Father intimately because he sent the Holy Spirit to you. Galatians 4:4-7 How does the Holy Spirit radically change your status before the Father?
The Holy Spirit will cause His own character to become evident in your life Galatians 5:22-24 How are these character traits evident in the way that God relates to you?
You are only able to pray because of the help of the Holy Spirit Romans 8:26-28 When don’t we know what to pray for?
The Holy Spirit guarantees your hope Ephesians 1:13-14 What connection does the Spirit have with faith in Jesus?
