These studies do not tell you what the Bible says. The scriptures given direct you to specific topics. The questions are intended to help you focus on the study. No answers are given. You have to read and search the scriptures for the answers. We encourage you to use Bible helps such as concordances and commentaries. However, scholars and theologians often disagree on interpretation and application. The best study help comes from God. Pray. Allow yourself to be honest with your reactions, but don't jump to conclusions. It takes time to read and meditate on all the Bible says on various topics. Feel free to ask questions in your prayers. You will be amazed to discover that God does answer the sincere seeker. You will also be surprised that the Bible may not say what you might think it does on many subjects. Keep a notebook. A loose leaf one would make it possible to add thoughts and additional information as you learn more about different subjects. Welcome to an exciting search.  

Bible Study Guide:

Be Filled with the Spirit

By Scarlett Stough

To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, Having Believed.

1. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26. Why should we "break bread" and "drink it (the cup of wine)" as Jesus said we should?

2. Luke 24:44-53. What did Jesus use as his "textbook" when he taught his disciples? What did he commission them to do? Why did they have to wait?

3. Leviticus 23:9-16; Luke 23:54-24:8; 1 Corinthians 15:20-23. What connection do you see between the time of the wave sheaf offering and the empty tomb indicating Jesus had risen from the dead?

4. Acts 2:1-47. Describe the events of this Pentecost. Why is it important for us today?

5. Ephesians 1:13-14; Romans 10:14-15. At what point are we "included in Christ?" What does this mean for us?

6. Ephesians 4:20-24; 5:15-18. What is the result of becoming a new person in Christ? What happens when we are continually "filled with the Spirit"?
