Forgotten God Chapter 1 Study Questions

Teaching a new class this term called Experiencing the Holy Spirit in the Everyday. Each week our class is reading a chapter from Francis Chan’s book Forgotten God.

Below are the study questions from chapter 1 and the video associated with the chapter.

1. Why is this book called Forgotten God? Is this your experience regarding the Holy Spirit? Is this the experience of the Church in general?

2. What are some baggage and stereotypes you associate with the Holy Spirit?

3. Francis Chan writes that one of his hopes is that he does not want to live the remainder of his life where he is right now, stagnating at this point. What are some of your own hopes for this study?

Hearing from God: Allowing the Holy Spirit to Minister to Our Souls

One of my greatest passions in ministry is teaching others on the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. I feel this the aspect of the Spirit’s work is not talked about enough. In session 8 of the class Emotionally Healthy Spirituality we looked at how the Holy Spirit can minister to our souls.

Let it Go: The Power of Forgiveness

What’s the first word that comes to your mind when I mention “forgiveness”? For me (and I suspect many others) the first word that comes to mind is “difficult.” Our relationships can get messy and we often can find it hard or difficult to forgive others. One of the biggest hurdles in our spiritual health is the barrier of not receiving forgiveness from God and not forgiving others. In order to live in the freedom Christ has for us, we first need to understand what it means to forgive.

Last Wednesday, I taught a lesson on understanding what it means to forgive as God intended it. The video is below and if you have 30 minutes, I encourage you to watch it.
