Sermon – Apostles’ Creed: ‘I believe in the Holy Spirit’

Read the texts – Ezekiel 36:22-30Romans 8:1-17

In this talk we look at the third ‘I believe’ statement in the Apostles’ Creed. Glen Connor, looking at Romans 8:1-17 shows us five aspects of how the Holy Spirit works in the life of a believer: to free us from sin and death, change our mindset towards God, to guarantee our resurrection, to bring holiness in the life of the believer, and makes us God’s children.

Sermon – God’s Own People (Romans 8:5-17)

Romans 1-8 Slide

The most important thing for Christians to do – especially when we find ourselves continuing to sin – is not to do, but to be; to be “in the Spirit” – that is, to belong to God through Christ and submit to his rule. Pleasing God is the work he does in us by his Spirit, as his Spirit leads us and confirms that we are God’s children and heirs, and enables us to call him “Father”.
