Our Sunday meals from God’s word serve as reminders that God works in the lives of His people to expand His glory. When we cooperate with Him we experience blessing, and when we don’t we experience heartache and defeat. What thoughts do you have as you reflect on Sunday’s message? How is the Holy Spirit actively working in your life?
Personally, the Spirit challenged me to consider folks who wear the label “Christian” yet live in Old Testament Israel. Just like the difference between wilderness Israel and Promised Land Israel, there is a difference between the Old Testament Christian label and the New Testament, Spirit filled, gospel centered Christ follower. Many wear the label Christian, but they follow from a distance. What about you? What evidence do you have in your life that the Holy Spirit lives within you?
As you listened to the message did you take time to consider how the Holy Spirit teaches us? What if any thoughts do you have about how the Holy Spirit teaches you? Would you spend some time making real inquiry into your spiritual life? Do you learn from the Holy Spirit or simply from the teaching of others?
Taking time to think about the Holy Spirit’s work in our life can be frightening, but taking the time is necessary if we are to advance into blessing. Don’t fall into the old patterns of doing what comes natural. Get up and go. Be strong and courageous as you move forward in your walk with Christ.
Please leave some comments and thoughts about what the Lord is teaching you over the last few days.
