To be alive on the outside but dead on the inside is to be an inner zombie. It reveals a need to be born from within. Let your heart come alive!
Hearts, passionate about Jesus, radiate like red hot lava, but when the passion dies, they harden into stone. “Stir up the gift within you.”
When inner life is like a freeway traffic jam, shut down by plans, programs, habits, and addictions, the Spirit is quenched. For the fruit of the Spirit to grow in abundance requires that we let the Holy Spirit freely flow both within us and among us.
Creating an environment where joy can freely flow from human hearts (innocent, Spirit-led joy), is one of my great delights. Demonstrating the joy, love, and peace of the living Jesus is much more effective than theologizing about Him.
