What the Spirit is Accomplishing in the Life of the Believer

& How We Pursue that at Westwood

Colossians 1:9-14

So far in January we have used our 2018 budget as a snapshot of the vision God has given us all to pursue together in the coming months. We have looked at how we are joining God in his mission to make disciples of all nations, beginning locally, and moving outward regionally and then globally. We have looked at how God has raised leaders to equip the Body here at Westwood for the work of the ministry, and the tools with which he has blessed us for the task. Today, we go back to ground zero of this vision to see what exactly God is accomplishing through his Spirit within the lives of individual believers, and how we have constructed our ministry trellis here to help the vine grow in that way.

Grounded in Christ (Know – Transformed Minds)

“…asking that you would be filled with the knowledge of his will…” (v. 9b)

Growing Together in the Word (Be – Transformed Heart/Affections)

“…in all spiritual wisdom and understanding…” (v. 9c)

Going for God’s Glory (Do – Transformed Behavior/Actions)

“…so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him…” (v. 10)

How does God pursue this agenda? Remember the four P’s!

“As God’s p_____________________  p_____________________, or speak, God’s Word into the lives of others, in p_____________________ dependence on the Spirit and in p_____________________, lives are changed.”
