Openness is the only action required (and is openness even a action?)

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. Rom. 8:11

Not one of us can conjure the Spirit of God by our obedience to the law or by some formulaic prayer. This Spirit lands on us because of the grace God extended because of His love expressed through Christ. The power of the Spirit in our lives does not result from our efforts for God but from our response to Him. Open up and wait.

Lord, thank you for this grace that opens my ears and eyes, enlarges my heart, and empowers my mind to respond to Your Spirit.
