I Am Tired of This Kind of Living

It really is an astounding truth that the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you.  He lives in me.  I don’t know what the Spirit will do or where He’ll lead me each time I invite Him to guide me.  But I am tired of living in a way that looks exactly like people who do not have the Holy Spirit of God living in them.

But They Came to Know

The reality is that the early church knew less about the Holy Spirit than most of us in the church today, at least in the intellectual sense.  But they came to know the Spirit intimately and powerfully as He worked in and through their lives.  All throughout the New Testament, we read of the apostles whose lives were led by the Spirit and lived out His purposes.
