There is no such thing as an average Christian life. Either you are living a vibrant Spirit-filled life, or you aren’t. You are in forward motion or in a pause position. You are living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit, or you aren’t.
You likely have some preconceptions about the Holy Spirit and how He works within a person’s life. I encourage you to lay them aside and approach these lessons with a wide-open heart and mind.
“The Holy Spirit literally burns sin out of you so that you won’t burn in your sin.” (source)
“Many Christians are content to live an adequate Christian life.” (source)
“Maintain your ongoing relationship with the Holy Spirit. Talk to Him daily, just as you might pray to God the Father. Recognize His presence. Ask for His help. Invite Him to lead and guide you into right paths and right decisions.” (source)
“Be aware of new directions He may be prompting you to pursue. God desires to get you into His Word so He can get His Word into you, and in turn, so you can share His Word with others. Real spiritual growth comes as you understand and apply God’s Word to your personal life and relationships.” (source)
“We struggle in staying obedient to God’s Word. We are fragile in our bodies, frail in our resolve, and failing in our courage. We are weak creatures apart from the Holy Spirit.” (source)
