Pastor said something last week that stuck with me. In regards to the Holy Spirit, and the extremes people can have. One extreme is putting so little emphasis on the Spirit that practically, you live like an atheist.
You know what? I think I was somewhat like this for a while. I acknowledges the Spirit with my words, but in my actions, I dunno, I acted as if everything was based on my own effort and doing, didn’t even leave room for the Spirit to move. I dunno, I think I just acted as if everything good that happened depended strictly on my own effort, no more no less. And in certain ways, that’s practically like being an atheist. Just something I’m ruminating over. I dunno, honestly, the Holy Spirit confuses me. But I’m learning.
