On the one hand, I think this is the absolutely correct way to move with Christianity, but on the other I wonder if Christians today are so diverse in our experiences and knowledge of the Holy Spirit that writing anything with a focus on the Holy Spirit could cause a lot of trouble without making sure we’re all on the same page first.
Here’s my question for you: Has the Holy Spirit helped or confused you as a Christian?
I’ve had a little of both. For a while I really struggled to understand the Holy Spirit and even feared that I wasn’t a real Christian because I didn’t experience the Holy Spirit like my charismatic friends and family.
Today I’m far more comfortable with the place of the Holy Spirit in my walk as a Christian, but that has been some hard-won comfort.
I hope to write some more about the place of the Holy Spirit in a week or two, but for now, I’m curious where you’re at.
