I don't believe in signs and wonders, or wish for more here among us Westernese.
Reading the New Testament through recently I was struck by two things.
1. How incredibly central the Holy Spirit was to those people, and how the Holy Spirit was worshiped and glorified.
2. How much those people longed for heaven, and how heaven focussed they were.
Two themes I have been giving much thought too. I think that the modern church, here in Westernese, a. ignores the Holy Spirit too much (bar some movements obviously) and b. is far too earth focussed.
Unfortunately Dad has stolen the heater and my hands are beginning to freeze to the keyboard and my back to front mouse. I will expand later, so please hold the firing squad.
