Sermon Guide

His Spirit Guides & Protects Me

February 26, 2023
Dr. Allen Holmes

Key Passage: “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4

The restraints of loving Jesus are actually liberating, and lead us into freedom.

REVIEW: With his staff, Jesus leads us.

  • READ: Romans 8:6 “So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.”
  • ‭‭DISCUSS: What is one way you have felt led by God recently?
  • ‭‭DISCUSS: What adjustment could you make to be more open to the leading of the Holy Spirit?

REVIEW: With his rod, Jesus protects us.

  • READ: ‭‭2 Thessalonians‬ ‭3‬:‭3 “But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.”
  • ‭‭DISCUSS: Is there anything that causes you to doubt in God’s protection?
  • ‭‭DISCUSS: Is there anything in your life that might be causing you to stray outside of God’s protection?


What else did you get out of the sermon this week? What actions or next steps can you take to apply it to your life?


Pray for more sensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit and more humility to stay within God’s protection and blessing.
