However, I also believe that the Spirit is more obviously active in places where people are desperate for Him, humbled before Him, and not distracted by their pursuit of wealth or comforts (like we are).
Note: This is eactly what i said to Kelland last week about the issue of speaking in tongues. i said that the stories I hear in private from missionaries who suddenly can communicate clearly with someone who speaks another language seems much more plausible to me than some of the manifestations I hear about in American churches The Holy Spirit seems to be most visibly active at the outer "boundaries" of God's kingdom--where the gospel is at its most cuttng edge.
The flip side of fearing that God won't show up is fearing that He will.
Note: Too true.
A lot of people want to talk about supernatural things like miracles, healing, or prophecy. But focusing inordinately on these things quickly becomes misguided. God calls us to pursue Him, not what He might do for us or even in our midst.
Note: The sign should never be confused with the actual destination.
want to go? What if he tells you to change jobs? To move? Are you willing to surrender to Him, no matter where He wants to take you? Am I?
