A presented body, a transformed soul, and a burning spirit are indispensable to a proper church life. However, after we have presented our body for the church life, it is very easy for us to fall into the opinions of our mind in our soul. At that time, we must be burning in spirit that we may be stirred up and encouraged to go on in the church life in a positive way.
Previously, I had joined several trainings before such as the one month training, three months training and the young adult training. During those trainings, I was only given at least one to two specified services. However, in this one week campus perfecting training, I have more than 2 services, and on top of that I still have to take care of certain matters. At one time, I suddenly felt very weak that I couldn’t handle the services and wanted to give up. But then, the Lord shine on me through Romans 12:11,“ Do not be slothful in zeal, but be burning in spirit, serving the Lord.” Through this Word, I was being exposed that I had fallen into the opinions of my mind and in order to be saved from this dormant state, I need to be burning in spirit. Hence, I made the decision to quickly turn to the Spirit. I realized that when I am in my spirit, I naturally did not trust in myself when I was carrying out the appointed services. Moreover, these services no longer belonged to me but to the Lord. Thus, from this I see that a living in the Spirit is important in serving the Lord.
