Remember Alice in Lewis Carroll's novel Through the Looking Glass. Was that world real or imaginary? So much confusion. This had to be much the same for the Samaritans and particularly for Simon the sorcerer in Acts Chapter 8. When Phillip, Peter and John visited Samaria it must have been much the same for that region as it was for Alice. The deceptions of the world, the mixture of philosophies, and the lure of magical powers caused confusion. Christ brings clarity. But the focus this week isn't their situation and condition, it's ours.
We've parenthetically labeled this part 2, as it is very much the companion of the audio of July 9 of 2017. This also could have just as easily been titled "All In". Are we? The Lord really does want all of us. The point isn't to be burdened or to be guilted into commitment but to take time for honest inventory of our journey toward total commitment to the Lord.
Our guest speaker today brings an interesting perspective. If they say you're a door, or you're a signpost, as will be discussed this session, I think everyone understands that you're not, really. These are just examples, metaphors. But what about a temple? That's real, and that has power. Power to change you. Power to change others. Your life is completely and irrevocably changed when the power of the Living God, the person of the Holy Spirit, because of Jesus Himself, has taken control of you.
