I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot.

Perhaps you have noticed something different about me. It may be as simple as the topics I have been writing about here or even the vibe of the message this past Sunday. If you haven’t noticed, don’t feel bad. It may take a little more time before it makes a complete outward showing. Then again it might be this Sunday.

I always love to teach at church but over the past couple weeks there has been something, not new, but revived inside me. I felt it last week and I feel it bubbling inside me again now. I really didn’t know how to explain it on my own until I was reading earlier and came across this well known passage.

If I say, “I will not mention him,
or speak any more in his name,”
there is in my heart as it were a burning fire
shut up in my bones,
and I am weary with holding it in,
and I cannot.

Jeremiah 20:9

Wow! That is exactly how I feel. Like I have been holding something in and I can’t do it any longer. In a way I think that is what our current series Haunted is all about. I want us all to get to the point where the Holy Spirit is stirring so much that we have to do something. 

At LifePoint this Sunday we will be looking at how the Holy Spirit empowers us and provides his gifts to us to do the very things he is stiriing us to do. Will you do it? Are you becoming haunted?
