Where are all the books for new Christians? Asked a young believer in a huge church bookshop. There isn’t such a section! – he was told.
So where do we start when the Spirit rears her beautiful head in our lives?
Good question and I hope to try out a few answers.
Actually, I have already started. Since the desire to find Christ comes from us becoming aware that we are spiritual beings. Moreover, the truth is that we are being constantly called by God; a bit like those automated systems that ring our phones repeatedly. So, let start with that ‘sense of call’.
Now people make a real meal of the term being called. So much so, we are shy of using it for what it is – our creator checking in with his creation. In fact, just as when we answer our cellphone, we don’t require to be in a holy place, reading a holy book or switching to a holy mode, we just need to stop and say ‘hi’. All we need do is be in and listening.
So today let’s switch on, be still and listen.
