When one enters into a relationship with God under the New Covenant upon repentance and baptism God grants the gift of the Holy Spirit to that person. There are many benefits conferred to those who are given the Holy Spirit. In this message are discussed five benefits that are available through God’s Spirit to those who yield to him and seek to obey his word.
Even those who know or think they know Jesus Christ have much more to learn. God’s word is the source that reveals who he is, and not only what he has done, but what he is doing and will do for the benefit of mankind.
What did Christ mean when he told Peter to feed his sheep? (John 21:15-18). Did this assignment apply only to Peter, or are there others charged with the responsibility of feeding God’s sheep? How does this apply in the Church? How are the “sheep,” as they are described in this analogy, to respond to what they are being fed? How might it apply in a broader sense to others not in the Church of God? Do you share in the responsibility to feed God’s sheep? And if so, how?
