“The Holy Spirit is living and active in your heart and mind in order to move the church to where it should and can be.” Is this a statement that we believe to be true as it pertains to Central? I pray that your answer is yes, but I might also add that the answer is likely “yes, but…” Yes, but we can always be more attentive to the who, what, when, where and why of the Spirit’s calling and leading. In other words, there will always be ways that we can be more in tune with the Spirit. There will always be days where we feel that we missed out on opportunities that the Spirit was leading us to or opening doors for us to enter. But then again, there’s not a one of us who couldn’t make this statement. So then, what do we do about this? Do we just throw our hands up in the air? Do we simply give up because we never seem to get it right? No! Our response should not be to give up but to give in. Give in more and more every single day to the Spirit. Give in to the Spirit all our fears and concerns. Give in and let the Godhead give you what you need to speak into the lives of the hurting. Give in and let the Godhead give you what you need to be a difference maker for His sake. “The Holy Spirit DESIRES TO BE living and active in your heart and mind in order to move the church where it should and can be.” Maybe we should’ve started out with this version of the statement about the Holy Spirit. But remember, let’s only use this version as a launching pad so that we can change the word DESIRE to IS.
Think about it. Pray about it. God bless.
