Out of control in the Spirit

Back to Message Archive

As humans, we naturally desire security, and as modern humans, we especially desire security that comes from being in control. From the day of Pentecost on, however, the Church has had to learn that the normal pattern for Christian existence is being out of control in the Spirit. In particular, when we cling to what we think will make us secure or enable us to be in control, we can be sure that God by His Holy Spirit will push us into uncharted waters.
