Why does God often feel more like a doctrine we know about than a Person we know? Why do so many of us think of Christianity as a lifestyle to which we conform, rather than a God with whom we commune?
Jesus gave his disciples the audacious promise that it was to their advantage he go back to heaven because the Holy Spirit could then come to live inside of them. How many of us consider our connection to the Holy Spirit so strong and so real that we would call his presence in us better than Jesus beside us?
The church is filled with people asking, "Is this it? Is this all the Christian life is supposed to be?" They long to experience more of God's presence-they just don't know how to get there. Some have been burned by "charismania." Others are fearful of it. Is there a way to experience the Spirit-without the weirdness?
