  1. Quite a list, Steve, that covers a lot of ground. Thought provoking and/or hopefully more Spirit provoking. You sum it up quite nicely with answer to the struggle; referring to Ephesians:
    ‘Be constantly being filled with the Spirit’
    And, as you say, [Only the Holy Spirit in and through us] As in the sweet sweet Holy Spirit.
    To God be the Glory
