Ezekiel 37:1-14  
The Spirit of WeiRD

Sermon Summary:

·         In our society, apathy is normal and passion is weird but it’s weird in a contagious and attractive way. ·         Christians are weird because they are passionate for God.

    • The Bible calls this being Spirit-filled because the Holy Spirit is the agent of passion.

·         God’s Spirit is the agent of passion that he has now given to us to breathe life into these dry bones (Ezekiel 37:1-14).

·         If we want to be passionate about God then we need to be filled with His Holy Spirit (Ezekiel 36:26–27).

·         A Spirit-filled life with express itself in a number of ways.

    • Passion for the things of God.
    • Contentment with knowing God and discontentment with others not knowing.
    • Victory over sin.
    • Power beyond your own abilities to carry out God’s mission.

·         How do we become filled with the Holy Spirit?  We ask God to give Him to us (Luke 11:9–13).

    • God will not give us His Spirit if we do not understand what we are asking for, or if we don’t genuinely want what He will give.
