Recent Thoughts

Hello,

Recently I have been thinking a lot about the topic brought up in this book "Jesus Wants to Save Christians". I have only finished reading the first chapter since I am not a fan of reading at all (which makes me think about how I made it through college but whatever), but it has made me think about what do it mean/look like for God to have a heart for the oppressed. Having grown up in a Chrsitian context, I know in my head what it means for God to have a heart for the oppressed but how does this play a role in my life? What does it have to do with me being in Japan? I still don't really know. Then I got to thinking about what real power is and what it means for our power, as Christians, to come of the Holy Spirit within us. Finally, this got me to think about the work of the Holy Spirit in my life reminding me of how I am so not in tune with the Holy Spirit. Being a theology major from Azusa Pacific University, can understand all this on an intellectual level but I feel like I'm missing out on the emotional level resulting in my spiritual level being limited in a sense. I guess in all comes down to a need of discipline in my life in listening to the Spirit more, but it is hard but I got to just keep persevering. So please be praying for me that God would guide my thoughts as I continue to process through these things. Thanks.
