Let the Spirit Work

“We know our lack, but we are very slow in allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us into deeper Christian life and experience, that place where the intent of our heart is so cleansed that we may perfectly love God and worthily praise Him. In spite of our hesitation and delay and holding back God does not give up, because the Holy Spirit is faithful and kind and patient and ever seeks to lead us forward into the life of the special kind of Christian.”
(A.W. Tozer)

The Greatness of the Spirit

“What does the Spirit do?  His works are ineffable in majesty, and innumerable in quantity.  How can we even ponder what extends beyond the ages?  What did He do before creation began?  How great are the graces He showered on creation?  What power will he wield in the age to come?  He existed; He pre-existed; He co-existed with the Father and the Son before the ages.  Even if you can imagine anything beyond the ages, you will discover that the Spirit is even further beyond.”
(St. Basil the Great)

Power for Life and Work

“Christian life is not to be lived in the realm of natural temperament, and Christian work is not to be done in the power of natural endowment, but Christian life is to be lived in the realm of the Spirit, and Christian work is to be done on the power of the Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is willing and eagerly desirous of doing for each one of us His whole work, and He will do in each one of us all that we will let Him do.”
(R. A. Torrey)
