Sermon Summary

Pastor Billy continues in the Holy Spirit sermon series this week preaching on the promise of a new heart and new spirit from Ezekiel 36. We will consider why we need a new heart, how we get it, and what it does.


Discussion Questions

  1. Of all the “I will” statements in this passage what is most meaningful for you? How so?
  2. What issue does v.24 address? In what sense do we continue to be in exile today?
  3. Why would God’s people need to be “cleansed” from their idols? Why not just forgiven?
  4. What is the difference between a heart of stone and a heart of flesh?
  5. What does it say about us and our spiritual condition that we have a heart of stone?
  6. What is the role of the Holy Spirit in this passage?
  7. Why is it significant that the Spirit causes us to walk in obedience (v.27)?
  8. What might it look like in your life this week if you lived out of the new heart and new spirit He has put within us?


For the Family

  1. Memorize: Zechariah 4:6 – Then he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.”
  2. Read: John 3:1-8 and discuss what Jesus means by being born again.
  3. Discuss: Why do we need God to give us a new heart?
