Or maybe we have Multiple Personality Disorder. I’m not sure.
Some days I want to play the prophet and say to those around me, “Thus says the LORD!” Others, I want to withdraw completely and live a hidden, quiet life.
There have been periods of my life where learning, knowledge and doctrine have dominated my thinking. Reading and thinking great thoughts along with the great minds of the faith. And other times where I sought to be the simple man taught by God, to whom scripture and prayer were the only fare on the table.
I’ve known, and read of, some giants of the faith in all these varieties, and more. I just don’t know which of them I’m going to be.
Just about the only thing I’m sure of is that I need to be a Holy Man.
A man living in the presence of God, dedicated to Him and Him alone.
I don’t need more knowledge.
I don’t need more insight.
I don’t need more stature and favor with men.
I don’t need better preaching, teaching, reading, revelation, gifting, technique or theory.
I need to be holy.
