- How brittle are you? I mean, do you fall apart when God tries to change you in some way?
- Are you “resisting” the Holy Spirit (Acts 7:51)?
- When He seeks to change your thinking and attitudes, do you “quench” His work in you (1 Thessalonians. 5:19)?
- Do your words and actions “grieve” the Spirit of God (Ephesians. 4:30)?
A lump of clay that refuses to be softened by water (the Holy Spirit) will become useless and perhaps even rejected as a vessel "honorable...set apart as holy, useful for the master" (2 Timothy 2:21). Read also 1 Corinthians 9:27.
