As humans, our motto in response to the Holy Spirit’s petition for those much-needed life alterations, tends to be, “Not yet”. "Not yet" is a well-known phrase baked deep in the self-tendencies of our nature. We are wired to procrastinate on those difficult steps of obedience that lead to robust life changes. What’s funny is we really do want the change to happen and we crave the freedom and fruitfulness the change would bring about. But to actually activate the change is hard and is often met with a thousand little hesitations and micro-justifications. This message is all about the forward action of the Christian life and how it works mechanically. It’s about those micro-steps upward that must be taken in order for God’s purposes to actually unfold in our lives. And it’s about the amazing power that is unlocked in the Christian life when we say, “yes” to God and “no” to our indolent natures.
