What If?

In Kristine Krieger, Soul Food on February 8, 2012 by The Spillover

There seems to be an urgency – a sort of extreme need in other religions to adhere strictly to the protocol for which each religion demands. Take, for an example, the commitment of one engaged in Buddhism. It is with meticulous accuracy that each person carries out the needed rituals. There seems to be a deep need, even fear of not executing the exact traditional prescription to be worthy of the favor of this god.

And it makes me wonder…. We, who identify ourselves as part in the Body of Christ… what if we adhered to the Holy Spirit’s direction in our lives – as a Buddhist does his rituals? What if we lived like our life depended on our commitment to the “doing” of what God calls us to in His Word?

What if?

One Response to “What If?”

  1. This is awesome. It reminds me of an idea from a book I read some time ago called “Forgotten God” by Francis Chan…

    Shouldn’t there be a *major* difference between one person who has the Spirit of God that raised Christ from the dead living within him/her, and another who does not?

    Intentional focus on the Holy Spirit is an area in which I need some discipline, methinks.
