Could that gentle dove at Jesus’ baptism dove stay with us? How can we not frighten him away?
Is our life full of I? I tried this, I did that? How can people that are all full of self become sweet and fragrant like Jesus?
Have we tried and failed to come through to victory in our lives? Why do we not experience the deliverance others have? Have we met God’s Spirit?
Is purity a process? Why does it seem we have an enemy inside? Can we make our old nature gradually die? What can we do? What part does God do?
If we have been made God’s child by a power outside ourselves, what are our chances of living that life by our own power?
Are we comfortable in life but dry inside? Do others see us as good Christians but nothing that makes them hungry for the same?

Do we feel a deadness and emptiness in our lives? Have we ended living like everyone else by our own knowledge rather than faith in him who knows?
How has the human race got so screwed up? Why can’t we be patient when we know we ought? Why do we lose our temper instead? Is there a way to freedom?
Do we find ourselves sinking into self pity? Are we often irritable and critical of others? Can this personality be recalled and remade?
