Example text

I'm not just a maverick, I'm not just somebody out there shooting six guns into the air trying to prove something. " I don't need that in my life. " There is nothing to talk about, there is absolutely nothing to talk about. " Well I don't like the way they operate. It is not even open to discussion. " On the contrary, we've already spent many hours and days and weeks and months checking these things out so we can now stand in authority and boldness and preach the Word. There is a difference. After Paul checked with men of God of good reputation, and found they were with him, he was also bold: But [all went well]; even Titus, who was with me, was not compelled [as some had anticipated] to be circumcised, although he was a Greek.

It is more than that. It is the lifestyle that comes out of your whole life, out of your whole being. It comes out when you walk and when you talk and when you lie down and sleep. Your whole life declares that Jesus has come in the flesh. " You could just say, "Be healed," because you know what is behind what you are saying, because you operate according to the life of God within you.

Everything else is pale in comparison. I get to thinking about these things and I get so drunk on the Holy Ghost, I get so beside myself, just totally beside myself. God will just overwhelm me by His presence—by how great and how wonderful and how awesome He is. No wonder the Psalmist asks, "What is man, that thou art mindful of him?
