1. The Holy Spirit is a person (like God the Father and Jesus the Son). Does the Spirit usually seem personal to you, or impersonal? Why do you think this is?
2. How can the image of the Holy Spirit coming as a dove (Matthew 3:16-17) help us to grasp that He brings ‘power in meekness’?
3. The Holy Spirit can equip us in many ways. He can come alongside us as a guide and counsellor (paraclete), He can bring us power, and He can illuminate Jesus for us. In which ways do you most need the Spirit to equip you? In which ways does our church?
