The text use by Caldwell was 1 Thessalonians 5:23, 24. The link will take you to the whole chapter. The interesting thing for me is that I've not heard these verses taught or read them as they stand alone. Those two short sentences are a powerful statement about God's relationship to a man who follows Him.
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.
Read those verses again and think about them for a second before you click away.
What follows are the points I wrote down. Just a warning, I don't always write down the points as they're given; I write them the way they hit me. Sometimes they even hit me the way the speaker intended them to be delivered.
Here's the note I wrote after Bob read the above verses: "...turned over - sanctified by the Holy Spirit in order to be used..." That's what I want; to be used by God. Now you gots my attention, Bob.
I made a note about unbelief and pride; we have to be teachable... unbelief will kill anything... without faith it is impossible...
God has to be believed...
faith + humble heart = cool things happening... this is an equal opportunity...
Bob said that God is both willing and faithful to cause change in us. He's done all the work. He's made us new; regenerated us. Now we need to get the rest of our body under the control of the Spirit. I thought it was funny when Caldwell said that life can look a lot like "eternal Romans chapter 7 instead of eternal life."
He nailed me there.
