In this sermon, Rev. C.H. Spurgeon explores the role of the Holy Spirit as the Comforter. He emphasizes the love, faithfulness, wisdom, and active presence of the Holy Spirit in comforting believers. Spurgeon also highlights the importance of receiving the comfort of the Holy Spirit and warns against seeking false comfort.
- What does it mean for the Holy Spirit to be a loving Comforter? How does the love of the Holy Spirit differ from the love of humans?
- How does the faithfulness of the Holy Spirit as a Comforter provide assurance and security to believers? How does this differ from the faithfulness of human comforters?
- Spurgeon mentions that the Holy Spirit is an active Comforter. How does the Holy Spirit comfort believers through actions rather than just words? Can you think of any examples from your own life?
- According to Spurgeon, the Holy Spirit does not reveal anything new but brings to remembrance the truths of Scripture. How does the Holy Spirit remind believers of God’s promises and bring comfort through familiar truths?
- Spurgeon warns against seeking false comfort and relying on worldly solutions. How can we discern between false comfort and the true comfort of the Holy Spirit? What are some common false comforts that people may turn to?
- Spurgeon emphasizes the importance of receiving the comfort of the Holy Spirit. How can we position ourselves to receive the comfort of the Holy Spirit in times of distress or trouble?
- How does the knowledge of the Holy Spirit as the Comforter impact your understanding of God’s love and care for you? How can you rely on the Holy Spirit for comfort in your own life?
Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit as our Comforter. We acknowledge that the Holy Spirit’s love, faithfulness, wisdom, and active presence bring us true and lasting comfort. Help us to recognize and receive the comfort of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Teach us to discern between false comfort and the true comfort that comes from you. May we rely on the Holy Spirit to guide us, comfort us, and remind us of your promises. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
