I am a free-lance singer and writer trying to practice "saying what I mean, meaning what I say, and not saying it mean." My goal on this blog is to provoke conversations in which we can be real in sharing with one another -- free to express our points of view, even when we differ. Just today, I posted MY CYBER LINKS under that label (see adjacent list). I am available, and I love it when we get to encourage one another!

Gathering in Christ
But you shall receive
power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses to Me
in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to
the end of the earth.
We have to be careful, lest we make the
passionate watchwords “a passion for souls” and “a passion for Christ” into
rival cries. The great passion which the Holy Spirit works in us…is the passion
for Jesus Christ Himself. “You shall be witnesses to Me” -- not witnesses only
to what Jesus has done or can do, but witnesses who are an infinite
satisfaction to His own heart wherever they are placed.Christian experience is living through
all this by the marvelous
power of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit working in me does not
produce wonderful experiences that make people say, “What a wonderful life that
man lives.” The Holy Spirit working in me makes me a passionate, devoted,
absorbed lover of the Lord Jesus Christ.
