What is the purpose of a compass?
Besides a compass, what other things do we use to
help guide and direct us?
What do we use to guide and direct our lives?
How do we know when our lives are going in the
right direction?
When people go on a trip, what might they take
along to ensure they do not get lost?
Why do some people refuse to use a map, even when
they know they need one?
What do people use, if anything, to determine
what is right and wrong, or how they should live?
As Christians, how do we know how God wants us to
live or what our relationship with Him should be
Article 3 The Holy Spirit We believe in the Holy
Spirit, the Third Person of the Triune Godhead,
that He is ever present and efficiently active in
and with the Church of Christ, convincing the
world of sin, regenerating those who repent and
believe, sanctifying believers, and guiding into
all truth as it is in Jesus.
John 739 1415-18, 26 167-15
Article 4 The Holy Scriptures We believe in the
plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, by
which we understand the 66 books of the Old and
New Testaments, given by divine inspiration,
inerrantly revealing the will of God concerning
us in all things necessary to our salvation, so
that whatever is not contained therein is not to
be enjoined as an article of faith. 2 Timothy

    Spirit lives within our hearts.

    comforts, and gives us the power to live
    Christlike lives.
  • Regenerates (spiritually reborn) those who
    repent and believe.

    God) our hearts by faith.

Holy Scripture
  • Gods Word to humankind in written form.
  • Divinely inspired (God inspired individuals to
    write His Word down) and contains the truth
    regarding faith and practice.
  • Reveals who God is and His relationship to
  • Reveals Gods will regarding salvation and how
    we can live in relationship with Him.

Bible and His Spirit?
Am I allowing God to guide and direct my life?
Am I submitting my will to Gods Word and Spirit?
Responsive Act of Submission Lord, in our
decision-making as a church, as families, and as
disciples of Christ, Your will be done. Lord,
in the choices of what we do, what we do, what we
see, the friendships we foster and the ways we
cultivate them, Your will be done. Lord, in
sifting through our dreams and ambitions, our
career choices, our lists of priorities, and our
goals for ourselves and our families, Your
will, your perfect will be done, as we live to
Christs Glory. Amen (Sing To The Lord, No. 465)
