Jesus promised that after He left He would send the Holy Spirit to well up inside of us producing living water. Or as I would put it, “a carbonated geyser.”
We try to get somewhere by being pulled from the outside instead of being powered from the inside. We serve God. We work for the Kingdom. We volunteer for our local church. We do stuff for Jesus. All of that is good except for one thing: much of what we do is on our own ability due to feeling obligated.
