References:Summary: The Spirit powers the Church. He enables all godliness, and empowers you to do everything God calls you to do (and only that). Get that power by being responsive and by keeping in step with the Spirit (moment-by-moment following His lead to keep the flesh from getting a head of steam). And make that obedience personal, obeying a person, not a set of rules (Because You want me to do this, I’m glad to do it). And let all this intimacy be governed by reverent worship.
Series: Loving God With All Your Heart
It is not enough to learn true things about God.
It is not even enough to experience the benefits of His attributes. We must not be satisfied until our experience of each attribute has been profound enough to move our soul toward deeper love for God.
We must keep learning and experiencing what is so wonderful about each attribute until there is a response in our affections -sparks of actual joy, peace, delight, awe, fear of God, security, satisfaction of soul, comfort, courage, and all the other benefits
Scripture promises will come from the nearness of God’s favorable presence. Each one of God’s attributes is a single ray in the spectrum of the brilliant radiance of His glory. That glory is an ocean, and just one drop of that ocean, if you could just see it clearly, would be enough to delight your soul and occupy your faculties of praise for all eternity.
This book is a journal of how God has been opening my eyes the past few years to begin to see a glimpse of that drop.
