Gathering in Christ

Acts 1:8
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.
