I speak in tongues, but I know when I’m not full of the Spirit. We have to keep those two things separated.
The realization hits me as I read through Acts again, preparing for my fall class. The Church knew the fullness of the Spirit. What I realized is this: I know I’m not filled with the Spirit when the miraculous is a BIG deal. If I were full of the Spirit, the miraculous would be no big deal.
God, fill me with your Spirit.
