Ask Yourself...

Taking a break from current discussions and just considering some of the options we see around us, ask yourself the following:

1. Is God the Holy Spirit sending a confused message if He chooses not to work through our emotions?

2. Is God the Holy Spirit sending a confused message if He chooses not to work through our impulses?

3. Is God the Holy Spirit sending a confused message if He chooses not to work through man's ingenuity and ideas?

4. Is God the Holy Spirit sending a confused message if He chooses not to work through fantastic experiences?

5. Is God the Holy Spirit sending a confused message if He chooses not to work through our moralist efforts?

6. Is God the Holy Spirit sending a confused message if He chooses not to work through our self-generated discipline and techniques?

7. Is God the Holy Spirit sending a confused message if He chooses not to work through the faithful preaching of Jesus Christ, as seen in His Word?

And last but not least,
Is the Holy Spirit sending a confused message if He chooses not to work through excellent blog posts written by dynamic pastors?

being a woman, and you know how emotional, impulsive, experiential we can be, i'm quite thankful the Holy Spirit works IN SPITE OF that!

btw- my friend went on to compare donald miller to a 21st century C.S.Lewis! *cringe*
