As humans we have a tendency to become complacent and donít seek to stand and live on truth, our foundations are weak. Many of us have bought into lies and we simply continue to live them without question. Weíve learned and adapted along the way. We donít question what weíve learned from our previous generations who have taught us to do the same. Our human nature is in control and weíre asleep at the wheel. Our spirit desperately longs to be loved and many donít understand that what they have perceived as love, is not real. They donít know where to find it or how to get it.

True believers have the Spirit of Truth, our flesh chooses to believe lies. The flesh is in control, the enemy is winning the battle. The world is spiritually starving and desperately longing to be loved.

Once upon a time, we learned about God, His truths and His true love, when He walked on the earth. Man drove him away. Then he sent His Son, who walked the earth with us and taught us His Fatherís ways. Man murdered him. Now the Holy Spirit walks the earth through true believers. Man canít drive Him away. The Spirit of Truth dwells in true believers and man cannot control Him. But man can get in the way and choose to be ineffective.

We (all true believers), were designed to shine, but not alone. The Holy Spirit provides the power and we have to plug into it. Our source for this power comes from reading His word and praying. If weíre going to shine and be the light that Christ has appointed all believers to be, we need this source. When we arenít plugged in, we are left to function from the energy of our flesh, and weíre wearing ourselves out! When we serve from the energy of our flesh, the world doesnít come to know Christ, there is no light within us. The lights are on but Christ canít be found in us because itís not shining bright enough.

Man used to learn directly from God, then through Jesus, now they learn through the true believers. We have got to walk in the Spirit, not the flesh, this world needs to know Jesus.
