THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE: ALL THE FULLNESS OF GOD

A study for the season after Pentecost

JESUS GAVE US AN AMAZING GIFT. ARE WE EXPERIENCING IT?

Jesus calls the Holy Spirit a “gift” who will guide us, lead us, and empower us. Yet many believers don’t experience the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives. This unique small-group curriculum provides a space in which we can explore what it truly means to “walk in the Spirit” on a daily basis.

This small-group curriculum centers on a 6-part DVD teaching series examining the life-giving and creative work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

As you walk through this curriculum with a small group or Sunday school class, you will have the opportunity to hear in-depth Biblical teaching and openly discuss what you learn in your group. You’ll also strengthen the bonds of community as you grow together, allowing your lives to be powerfully changed by the truths you discover. It’s time to begin the journey to a Spirit-filled life!

The Spirit-Filled Life is part of the Christian Life Trilogy series.

Spirit-Filled Life

The Spirit-Filled Life devotional book has a Small Group companion Study Guide with a teaching DVD.

Chapters include:
Baptized
Adopted
Transformed
Equipped
Empowered

On the third day the friends of Christ coming at daybreak to the place found the grave empty and the stone rolled away. In varying ways, they realized the new wonder; but even they hardly realized that the world had died in the night. What they were looking at was the first day of a new creation, with a new heaven and a new earth; and in a semblance of the gardener God walked again in the garden, in the cool not of the evening but the dawn.

NEW LIFE! IT IS SOMETHING WE ALL WANT.

BUT HOW DO WE FIND IT?

The Resurrected Life: Making All Things New

The Resurrected Life: Making All Things New

The Bible promises that those who are in Christ are “new creatures.” But how does that transformation take place? What does it look like to live on the other side of the cross? This unique Easter-season curriculum provides a space in which we can discover what it truly means to live a new life.

The Resurrected Life Devotional provides a daily Scripture and meditation by which you’ll learn how Jesus Christ is making all things new—right now!

The small-group study & DVD teaching series explores seven key areas of life transformation as Jesus heals, redeems and makes us new. Hear in-depth Biblical teaching and openly discuss the power of God in Christ in community.

As you walk through the curriculum together, you’ll find that the glory of the Resurrected Life is the power of the Church. Christ’ resurrection from the dead gives us new and abundant life. So strengthen the bonds of community, grow together and allow your lives to be powerfully changed by the truths you discover. Begin the journey to New Life!

The Resurrected Life can be used as a Church-wide campaign. Designed to accompany the Christian Life Trilogy. the Campaign Manual and the Leader Training DVD provide resources and training as to how to maximize the engagement of your congregation by doing the Christian Life Trilogy studies as a Church-wide Campaign. Each of the three titles can stand alone, or they can be done in a series. Many congregations use the Crucified and Resurrected Life for Lent and Easter and then kick off the Spirit-Filled Life in the Fall season.The Training Videos provide teaching for the senior pastor, and campaign leadership teams as well as the small group hosts.
