Allowing the Holy Spirit


Never underestimate the greatness of this difference. It can lead to nominal Christianity or it can lead to radical fervent Christianity.  I have always desired to be on fire for God.  Many throughout history have desired this. Few have discovered it.  The key is pursuing the Holy Spirit.  What is the difference between allowing the Holy Spirit and pursuing the Holy Spirit?


To understand this we need to have a definition.  The dictionary indicates what the word “allow” means.  To allow means to permit.  This is how some well-meaning Christians live.  They allow the Holy Spirit or permit Him to work in their lives or churches.  It is almost a form of tolerance.  Making allowances for the Holy Spirit.  The definition goes on to define the word allow with the phrase:

“Give periodically” – some Christians live like this as they give the Holy Spirit periodic opportunity, at their discretion.  In this way the Holy Spirit is accommodated in people’s lives, together with all the other aspects of life.  Pursuing the Holy Spirit is totally different.

About Alive to God

We would like to help individuals who would love to experience more of God. The Bible tells us that we can be 'Alive to God'. For many Christians this has been an element that they have failed to enjoy. Enjoying God and His presence in our lives is something that we can 'know' and experience in our lives.

  1. I pray for the Holy Spirit to indwell in me, and to lead and guide me every moment of my life.
    Maybe that is not pursuing Him strongly enough?
