Oh Sundays…. I always enjoy Sundays. Being around people that have the same purpose in their life as I do is very refreshing. Today our lesson in Sunday school was about our purpose in life and how to live it. Our verses were out of Ephesians 5, and one stuck hard with me.
After I graduated from high school and started off in college, I got caught up in a “drinking” crowd. I have to be honest, I was a mess. I’ve seen my family pretty hurt by the decisions I have made while drinking. Brother Steve explained it pretty well, he said: To be filled with alcohol your body and mind poor out actions that you cant explain or help, but the same is also true with the Holy Spirit. You actions come out of your love for Christ and the will he has for you. How great is that? You cant help but exude the love of Christ and the will he has in store for you when you are powered by the Spirit. I love the emotion that I receive when I feel the Holy Spirit, although most of the time it comes out in tears. The power you feel when you know the hand of God is with you is unmatchable. I went to a MercyMe concert about 3 weeks ago and the power that was in the building as hundreds of people raised their voice in one purpose was too much for me. I cried, Daisy cried, mom cried, and I think if you didn’t cry you weren’t singing the words I was. Especially this song.
