Most of us as Christians would agree with the premise that the Holy Spirit lives within us. Jesus promised it. The disciples experienced it. And the way we live our lives should reflect it. But in order for us to reveal the presence of the Spirit within us, we must learn to rely upon the power He has made available to us. And that is going to take a concentrated effort to recognize His presence and to understand our complete dependency upon Him for all that we have been called to do as Christ-followers. Paul calls us to set our mind on the Spirit. But what does that mean and how are we to do it? To have the mind of the Spirit is to live under His influence, to think as He thinks, and to act according to His will and in the power that He provides. The Holy Spirit is not just some disembodied force we can tap into and utilize for our own selfish desires. He is the Spirit of God who wants to radically alter our actions and our attitudes.
