AWAKE Week: Thursday

P1030922

On August 29, Mrs. Hooley did chapel on the Holy Spirit. She started off saying we can be fakers of God and we can act like Christians even though we aren’t really being Christians. She then told us that when you are filled with the Holy Spirit you will without a doubt do crazy things. The Holy Spirit can brings form to our formlessness and restores us to fellowship with God. We try to fill emptiness that only the Spirit can. She also explained how the Spirit is the resemblance of God coming and living in us. Mrs. Hooley finished with a quote by Corrie Ten Boom, “Trying to do the Lord’s work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, the the ministry of Jesus just flows out of you.” The Holy Spirit is the reason you do crazy things for God.
