Sin, Ego, And The In-dwelling Spirit
Not everyone is going to open Christ's spiritual door the same way.
Not everyone is going to open the door fully. Some people will open
Christ's door only a few inches wide, peek inside, and walk or run away.
Some people will throw the door wide open and want and need a big, loud,
and resounding experience. Some people will gently push the door open
and they will experience His love in a quiet time while on their knees
in loving devotion. Some people will stand at the door, never get it
opened, and will fake it like they have fully experienced the Holy
Spirit's full power. The problem is, a lot of power-seeking, ego-driven
people (inside and outside of the church) want to set up a criteria to
measure how much of the Holy Spirit, indwelling or not indwelling, is
working in a person's life. Many people want to take a yardstick or a
measuring cup and say, so to speak, "Hey Brother or Sister, you got
forty-three units of the Holy Spirit!" The person doing the
measuring places himself or herself above everyone else and acts as a
judge. This idea or attempt at measuring how much of the Holy Spirit
someone has is both ridiculous and ludicrous. It is human sin, and ego
that cause a person to act as a judge of others in this way.
