In a recent http://www.spectrummagazine.org/ post, Gift of Prophecy in Israel and the Church I posted the following:
"'. . . forgetting that their salvation ultimately depends on God’s Spirit at work throughout the church and the world.'
Thank you for your meditation and especially for this quoted thought. We can try to do this or that: pray, read the bible, share our faith, and serve those in need. How easy though, it is to make these experiences less than well-intentioned. Sometimes we think that we're buying our salvation by engaging in these life-giving activities.
Like you say in the above-quoted thought, it is the Spirit who is ultimately responsible and brings about every phase of our salvation. We need to learn to recognize his presence and marvel at his supernatural ministry in our lives."
