5 Key Ministries of the Holy Spirit
- Walk according to the Spirit.
- Follow daily.
- Set your mind on the things of the Spirit.
- The sin is not in being tempted. The sin is in succumbing to the temptation.
- If you walk down the street, and see a picture of a beautiful woman, you are naturally inclined to see her and appreciate her, but we train our eyes to “bounce” away, so as to maintain a pure thought life.
- Put to death the deeds of the body by the Spirit.
- A fight is required to use their will to say no to sin.
- Be led by the Spirit.
- Get used to hearing the still, small voice within saying “stop” or “go”.
- Measure it against Scripture.
- It’s like a dance (ballroom). Learn the lessons in private.
- Know the Fatherhood of God by the Spirit.
- Ignore what the world says about us.
- Listen to our Heavenly Dad.
- Pastor Garey got me and Fiona to do a reading of Romans 8 to the church. We alternated verses.
- I’m back on the wagon! Attained 110.3 kg this week (an average loss of 1 kg per week). Attended gym twice and boot-camp once this week.
- Attended Manukau Armageddon (#Manugeddon) on Saturday. Bought a Superman (“Last Son of Kyrpton”) t-shirt, a signed photo of Christopher Judge and a signed photo of David Nykl (Dr Radik Zelinka from Stargate Atlantis). Hamish spent over $300 there. Got some very cool stuff. As he says, “I have a job and no expenses”.) ç The best time of life.
- At Toastmasters (which I had not originally intended to attend) I made up an impromptu speech about Manugeddon. It was well received. Numbers were down. I got to speak, even though it was not my turn.
- Attended a work training day on Agile/Scrum/TFS. How to use TFS to maintain your Agile DevOps project.
- Started to convert my work project (CMOS) to my TFS Online account.
- Started to write an Agenda page for my MCBC Toastmasters Club web site.
