Where the Spirit of the Lord is

Written by on July 3, 2012

“Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
(2 Cor. 3:17, NIV)

Fireworks over the Willamette River – note image of the American flag in cascading sparks.


As passion-hearted disciples of Christ, we follow after a loving God who continuously declares freedom over us.

  • Our Father doesn’t chain us or condemn us to legalistic rules. He sets us free to love as He loves.
  • Jesus, our co-heir, doesn’t coerce us into matching achievements of those who’ve gone before us. Rather, He releases us to express ourselves with creativity, true to our unique DNA.
  • The Holy Spirit doesn’t quench the flame in our souls. Instead, He lights a strike-anywhere match, fans the flame, and sends us out to multiply it.

In what area are you learning to love as God loves?
In what area are you stretching and expressing yourself creatively?
In what part of your community does the Holy Spirit need you to spark a fire?

    Lynn, Using your questions to talk with God. Thank you.
    Your blog is a challenge, inspiring, and comforting. A sanctuary where
    God is found, and experienced. May
    God bless you as you write your book
    on self-talk. Going back now to read
    about your conference in Turner.
    Sounds very inter-esting! Jeanne
