When it comes to most things in life, there are rules. Whether driving down the road or baking a cake, rules keep us on the right path. Rules are also a part of relationships. This is no less true when it comes to God. The two basic rules are: trust in God’s Son, and obey his commands. While it may sound easy, it’s not. Instead, we prefer our own way. We’d rather trust ourselves. And God knows this about us. So, God offers us a share in the Holy Spirit to activate faith and inspire obedience. This Spirit bears witness to God’s character and expectations for us while also empowering us to comply. And when we do, we become people of purpose and passion. We care about what Jesus cared about. And most importantly, we share our experience and power with others. We bear witness too.
