I am admitting this here because I fail: I want to guard my heart against the mirage of a close relationship with God based on the love of words, the study of ideas, or analysis of doctrine.
“The Holy Spirit is a living Person and should be treated as a person. We must never think of Him as a blind energy nor as an impersonal force. He hears and sees and feels as any person does. He speaks and hears us speak. We can please Him or grieve Him or silence Him as we can any other person. He will respond to our timid effort to know Him and will ever meet us over half the way.” Tozer
Let’s talk with Him as though He is next to us at every moment – loving, guiding, comforting us. Let’s us then hear Him – really listen – so we can share *Him* with others.
