It Doesn’t Work Without The Power of the Spirit

Fans trying to follow without being filled with the power of the Holy Spirit become overwhelmed by life’s circumstances.  They seem to be following Christ, but then something in life goes wrong and they don’t have the power to overcome it.  Instead of following Christ and sticking close to him in the storm, they become discouraged and keep their distance.

Eventually something happens and you can’t get through it on your own.  Followers have discovered that it doesn’t work without the power of the Spirit.
