Is experiencing Jesus the supreme reality of your present experience, or is it otherwise—perhaps, quite otherwise?
Bad habits…have any? And are they getting worse rather than better? As for besetting sins—have you overcome them, or does sin maintain its grip? At times, are you surprised how low you can sink?
What about relationships? Do others, especially those closest to you, long for and enjoy your presence? Or are these people preoccupied in your presence with minimizing strife and securing only a relatively quiet co-existence?
And in the sphere of spiritual influence, are you effective? Especially in the Gospel, can you positively testify to His life-changing power working through you? Or do you dutifully, even mechanically, go through the motions hoping that God will somehow use your efforts for His good? Perhaps you have lost even that hope and have given up on winning people to the Saviour.
Are you in need of a fresh experience with Jesus?
I have written a new devotional book entitled Experiencing Jesus. It is for anyone seeking personal revival through the Spirit-filled life. I explain from Galatians 2:20 what makes this prospect possible and then show that God makes the way simple.
