Sermon on John 15:26-27, 16:4b-15
Sermon Talking Points:
- In what ways is “spirituality” (in general), popular today? What are some examples? How is this different than Christian spirituality, that has a definitely Christ-centered, cross-focused content?
- Look in the passage from John again. What makes it clear that the Holy Spirit’s work is to direct people to Christ rather than Himself?
- Why does simple talk about morality fall short of being Christian spirituality? What would such a spirituality without reference to sin look like?
- What is the spiritual righteousness that counts before God? How do we get this rigtheousness?
- The judgment that Jesus speaks of in this passage is directed against whom? How do we benefit from this judgment?
- How can we keep our Christian spirituality Christ-centered and cross-focused?
