10 Tweets on “The Holy Spirit & the Story of God” (1 Corinthians 2:10-16)

Here's the sermon in 10 Tweets in our The Letter to the Corinthians series.

1/ We all live in a story.

2/ We can’t know the better story—the story of God—or really understand it or live in it well aside from the work of the Holy Spirit.

3/ The Holy Spirit reveals the story of God—the gospel.

4/ “The gospel is the message that God himself has come to rescue and renew creation in and through the work of Jesus Christ on our behalf.”

5/ The Spirit knows God’s thoughts, so he can communicate God’s plan. He intimately knows the story that is unfolding. 

6/ The Holy Spirit helps us understand the story of God.

7/ He guides you into the story and through it so that you own it and believe it and want to live by it. 

8/ The Holy Spirit helps us live within the unfolding story of God.

9/ We have the mind of Christ—access to Christ’s thoughts, his intentions, his plans for the world and for each one of us.

10/ We resist the better story. And this doesn’t happen simply because it’s hard to believe it’s true but because it’s hard to live the truth.
