Not Papal Infallibility But the Witness Chapter 27


1. In what ways do I see common knowledge evident in both Christians and non-Christians where I am? 

I see references to explanations of earthquakes, causes of distress and war, understanding of mathematics and general scientific principles, teachings on environmentalism and all sort of attempts to explain the political situation in the USA (with presupposed understanding that lacks spiritual insight)...

2. Do I see any evidence of knowledge received by faith amongst my non-Christian friends, co-workers, or students? If so what? If not, why not?
I see a certain level of conviction regarding the need for compassion and grace amongst many non-believers as well as believers. But, generally speaking, I sense a strong disconnect between the interpretation and understanding of things as they are and as they should be between between non-believers and believers.  Non believers generally are constantly focused on what is or what society thinks should be or what the consensus is, whereas believers are focused on what is in light of what God says should be the reality and what God's Word proclaims to be the consensus that matters.

3. In what specific ways has the Holy Spirit convicted me in the past?
Of where and when to go (but rarely how, just to go) of particular messages to be preached or to be given to people, of excitement regarding things that are to take place (re: today and the mail I received), and always the words "I love you."
4. In what ways is the Spirit convicting me regarding my time spent and work efforts in these trying times?

That I am to be still, to be patient, and to watch His glorious plan unfold!

5.  What is God saying to me about all of this? 
Abide in me and be and see the great work He is about to do in my life.
