Small Group Study:
1. The Holy Spirit illuminates the Word of God.  

Read John 14:26 & 16:13 "[26] But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. ... [16:13] When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come."  

1 Corinthians 2:12 "Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God."  

What is something the Spirit has illuminated for you in God's Word recently? 

2. The Holy Spirit convicts of sin.  

Read John 16:8 "And when he [the Spirit] comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment."  

We can become so busy, so focused on the daily routine, and so surrounded by distractions (cell phones, internet, social media, TV, music, emails, etc.) that we fail to hear the Spirit's promptings. 
What are some good strategies for hearing the Holy Spirit throughout our day? 

Is there something the Holy Spirit has convicted you about recently that you would like to share?

3. The Holy Spirit helps us glorify Jesus.  

Read John 16:14 "He [the Spirit] will glorify me [Jesus], for he will take what is mine and declare it to you."  

How have you experienced the Holy Spirit helping you to glorify Jesus (for example, in evangelism, in living a holy life, etc.)? 

What is the number one way you need the Spirit's power in order to glorify Jesus in the next week?
