Reaching Life Through Death

When our lives are governed not by a network of laws by the fire of the Spirit that burns within, when we submit to the saving truth that we reach life only through death, that we come to the light only through darkness, that the grain of wheat must fall into the ground and die, that Jonah must be buried in the belly of the whale, that the alabaster jar of self must be broken if others are to perceive the sweet fragrence of Christ, when we respond to the call of Jesus which is not, Come to the ice cream party”, but “Come to me”, then the limitless power of the Holy Spirit will be unleashed with astonishing force.
