On OYB a while ago I posted a comment about my feeling of missing something in my own life and in the life of the church:
I miss the manifest presence of the Spirit in myself and in the church today. Not completely, there are signs of His presence. But, from these passages in John's Gospel, it seems there should be so much more .... "streams of living water flowing" sounds like more than a few drops or a trickle. "If you follow me, you won't be stumbling through the darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life." sounds like more than a flickering torch light in a huge dark cavern.
I am interested in hearing what you think the reasons are for a "dryness" (trickle) of the Holy Spirit in:
And if so inclined - How to increase the flow in the areas you talk about?
So this is an attempt get my thoughts together on this topic.
