Have you ever thought of hiring a personal trainer? One hour of watching “The Biggest Loser” leaves me with mixed feeling on the subject. Obviously the benefits of a personal trainer are exponential for anyone determined to get physically fit.
I didn’t see Pat again for a few more weeks, traveling again, but when I returned I made a point to say hello. Patt is one of those young men that just lights up your heart, so I was excited to see how he was doing. After chatting briefly, I asked, “Patt, are you praying in tongues regularly?”
Does it really matter that we are Pentecostal? Does it matter in today’s church culture? It does matter. The infilling takes believers into a deeper, fuller relationship with God. The benefits of living a Spirit filled life is experiencing the partnership of Holy Spirit guiding, empowering and transforming every area of a believer’s life. I am not talking about a one-time experience. I am referring to building on a relational experience that moves forward into everyday life; like a wedding should move into a deeper, fuller lifelong relationship.
