Lesson 13: THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT: The Holy Spirit is my personal Divine Guide in all things.
Bible Fact: The Bible is the infallible word of God and the primary authorized written source that gives Divine instructions to all true Christians.
Bible Text: John 16:7,13
Aim: To lead students to accept the Holy Ghost as the promise of Jesus Christ to them personally and to encourage them to be guided by His will for their decisions and daily living.
Living as a fully surrender Christian I will be able to live a much more peaceful life style knowing that God The Holy Ghost is fully in charge of the directions of my personal life and my Christian growth. I use this lesson to learn more about His guidance so that I will glorify Him in all that I do.
I.God The Holy Ghost within me guides my thoughts in order for me to think like Jesus Christ in all that I say or do. Read Philippians 2:5. According to Hebrews 8:10 I can locate at least four (4) spiritual actions that happen when God The Holy Ghost guides me.
II.God The Holy Ghost within me guides my worship in order to maximize my personal and public praises that I give to God.

Psalm 116:12-14 lets me know that I should expect to render at least three (3) things in my worship experience.

What Achan did disturbed the entire camp of Israel and the peace of God left from among the people of God. Joshua intervened and guided Achan to give glory to God and restore peace among the people. I can identify in Joshua 7:1,10-19 what four (4) things Achan was requested to do to release the peace of God to give God glory in the camp.
