If you ask for the gifting of the Holy Spirit, He will lead you into servanthood, for the heart of the Holy Spirit is service– He always lives to glorify Jesus who always lives to glorify the Father. 

Mike Bickle, paraphrased (I should get the direct quote– it was powerful!!)



“One discovery that, for me, has made all the difference in the world is that the reason God does not like being taken for granted is not only that it robs him of glory, but also that it robs me of joy. And perhaps the greatest discovery of all is that these two goals — God’s goal to be glorified and my desire to be satisfied — are not at odds. That’s the Gospel to me. And they come together in one silmultaneous experience: worship.”

John Piper
