Luke 1:26-38
– His name will be Salvation
– He will be Great
– He will be Son of th ehighest
– He will be from the line of David
– He will reign over the house of Jacob forever

– God desires to overshadow me and re-birth somethings in me
– a shadow only exists where there is light.

Acts 5:1-11
– offering being received
– the Holy Spirit’s a person, not just an entity
– don’t lie to the Holy Spirit
– Holy Spirit is real
– your heart towards money is important
– we need the fear of God (v.11)
– people saw the power of God and didn’t want to join unless they were serious (v.12-13)
– Peter was reflecting God’s shadow (v.15

5 areas God wants to overshadow us:
1. Birth a fresh number and thirst for Him (Col. 1:15-18)

2. Birth a fresh conviction of sin, righteousness, and judgement (John 16:7-12)
  – birth a fresh baptism of righteousness
  – God has made it so clear and easy to be forgiven, just one way so it’s not confusing
  – birth a fresh conviction of judgement

3. We need to be overshadowed to be filled with fresh power for bold proclamation (Acts 4:1-8)
  – be open to all that God has for you
  – be bold but respectful in sharing the Gospel

4. We need to produce the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:16-26)
  – live by the Spirit to produce life
  – live and walk in teh Spirit

5. We need to be controlled by the Spirit (Rom. 8:1-10)
  – those controlled by the Holy Spirit walk with God
