In the last weeks I’ve been using this crafted prayer to hit the target of Religious Spirit. It’s been powerful. I don’t have a lot to share because I’m still learning. I would love to hear what you have learned about Religious Spirit. This is what I know.
- If your spirit is not connected to the Holy Spirit, your spirit grieves. I heard this from Michael Regier during his conference called RISK Soul Health Leadership Bootcamp 1.0
- Religious Spirit has two main goals:
- To block the work of the Holy Spirit
- To stump the development of the fruit of the Spirit
One sign of Christian maturity is the fruit of the Spirit — which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Reflect for a moment on the opposite spirit, the opposite of the fruit of the Spirit: apathy, despair, strife/violence, impatience, unkindness, viciousness, faithlessness/unfaithfulness, anger/fury, no self-control. We see way too much of this in the world and the church.
Perhaps this crafted prayer is a tool that will help you go deeper in the Spirit. (The blank line denotes the place that you insert your name or the name of the person for whom you pray.)
