I started a recent thread on Worship and The Holy Spirit, this thread should focus on the heart of the issue. I hope I can explain things coherently It seems to me that there is belief out their that could be best described as "Do It And The Holy Spirit Will Make It Work vs. Do it to the best of your abilities". That probably doesn't make since but let me give an example that deals with worship (sorry if this looks like rehashing) Example A: I get scoop for the week on what the sermon is on, what should be theme of service (repentance, resurrection, etc.). With that I seek to create a service that I feel is needed. Prayer is involved as well as studying the scriptures. Example B: Man first picks the songs after prayer. The scoop comes in and Man is amazed at how the songs correlate to the theme and what have you. He attributes it to the Holy Spirit making sure everything fits together. (Please disregard issues with the service itself, I know) Can you guys help me with finding the verses that deal with how the Holy Spirit leads and what it looks like? Perhaps this is part of the Cessationists debate? To me, I picture Da Vinci painting the Mona Lisa. Did he just throw paint of the canvas and out this artwork came? Or, did he methodically paint it?
