J. Lee Grady at Charisma Magazine has another great article up at "Fire In My Bones" called Don’t Block the Flow of the Holy Ghost. An excerpt:
We love to go to the altar for a touch from God. We love the goose bumps, the shaking, the emotion of the moment. We love to fall on the floor and experience one filling after another. But I am afraid some of us are soaking up the anointing but not giving it away. Our charismatic experience has become inward and selfish. We get up off the floor and live like we want to.
Pentecost is not a party. If we truly want to be empowered we must offer God an unqualified yes. We must crucify every no. We must become a conduit to reach others; not a reservoir with no outlet.
Read the whole thing - and let's all pray for a new and deeper filling of the Spirit.
