  1. Who is the Holy Spirit to you; not just theologically, but experientially?

  2. How would you “define the relationship” you have with Him?


  3. Is it important to you HOW you mentally view the Holy Spirit, in terms of your attitude towards Him? If so, why?


  4. One of the most mysterious and amazing things Jesus prophesied to the believer is that the Holy Spirit would actually live inside them. What does that mean to YOU? HOW do you integrate this as a reality in everyday life (husband, dad, friend, entrepreneur, pastor, etc.)?


  5. It is easy for us all as Christians to say we believe the Holy Spirit lives in us. What are some examples you see of how we allow gaps between what we want to believe and what we actually have integrated/activated into our lives?
