    Charles Finney on the Holy Spirit


Privately journal on the topic of personal perfection.  Write, as it were, your prayer to the Lord on this topic.

Center your thoughts around Matthew 5:48, which says, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”  Meditate on this truth which permeates this chapter. 

Remember, life is a journey of perpetual change to an ultimate conclusion.  The sum of our lives is the formation of our character.  God is in the business of perfecting us.  He does this in two ways and He always involves us in the work: He removes the old nature, and He replaces it with His new nature. 

Springboard Questions:

What good things await you in His presence?

What propensities for particular sins does the Lord want to eradicate in your life? 

What new freedoms do you hope to experience in this adventure?
