We all have a mode we get into when we are trying to accomplish something. You may put earbuds in to drown out noise. Maybe you find a place of solitude away from people and distractions. It is all about positioning yourself to be productive without anything or anyone interfering with your goals or train of thought. But I often wonder if we do that with God.
Without even thinking, we can get into a “mode” of life that we don’t wander from. There’s the weekly schedule, the daily grind, the monotony of a schedule, and the weight of responsibilities. We can get so regimented in life we lose our sensitivity to where the Lord is leading us.
As a church community, we are embarking into a six-week series with one goal and one prayer encapsulated in one word: Interruption.
Interrupt our status quo.
Interrupt our bias of what we think of the Holy Spirit.
Interrupt our hate (of ourselves and others).
Interrupt our plans.
Interrupt the things we feel captive to.
Holy Spirit, interrupt us and show us Your glory.
Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:
- To engage with the Holy Spirit is the beginning of a revelation of God’s mission over your life.
- The Holy Spirit causes us to see, not the Jesus we think we know, but Jesus as we are supposed to know.
- Knowing Jesus must be more than head knowledge but a heart encounter.
- The way that we know that we need the Holy Spirit in our lives is how our attitude is to our “Samaria.”
- Any presence of hate is an indication we need a greater revelation of Jesus.
- When you have the Holy Spirit, you are not a witness of others, you are a witness of Him.
Love you all. Have an amazing week.
BTW: Here’s the new song we did yesterday…
