God Thinking LXIX - The Dichotomy 4

"The Church has done a lousy job of training the saints to be warriors, empowered by God, suited, ready and available for active service without notice.

The Holy Spirit is calling you out and you are still trying to figure out if you are in.
The Holy Spirit is equipping the saints, but the saints are saying:   That’s too hard - It doesn’t suit me - That’s not my color - That’s not comfortable

The Holy Spirit is calling Christians to be Holy - and Christians are still making excuses for living like the world.

The Holy Spirit is prompting the children of God to grow up into mature, responsible believers.

Paul said, in 1 Corinthians 13:11, “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

The Holy Spirit is guiding, and at crucial crossroads, many who claim Christ are making foolish decisions and sometimes irreversible mistakes.

The Holy Spirit is available and you are not.

The Holy Spirit seeks communion with you, 24/7, and you often complain about meeting with Him and His people two hours a week. Why do we have to beg and plead with people to come and experience the presence of God?

The Holy Spirit does not deposit Himself unto you so you can remain worldly and powerless. 

God knows that on your own power, under your own authority, apart from His operating in you and through you, you can only interfere with the actual plan of God.

You must die to self."
