THE INDWELLING PRESENCE , the Divine Whisper, a given, a gut feel....

There is nothing you can do to lose the Holy Spirit; the most you can do, as Ephesians cleverly says, is to “grieve” the existing Presence that is “sealed” within you (4:30).

joy its wonderful fruits.

But there is nothing you can do to “GET” the Holy Spirit either. Why? Because it comes with the product! All you can do is fan the gift into flame that inherently lies within you, and within everything that God has created.

Thus, do not hate “sinners” or look down on them. Feel sorry for what they are MISSING OUT ON!
