I am here, Jesus.
The Padgett message spoke the truth when it said that permanent and authentic change of the soul has occurred not by the fiery preaching of enthusiasts, but by the quiet inner reflection of a person in his or her quest for spiritual growth.
This growth is not accomplished by dramatic gestures. It occurs by a methodical and careful examination of oneself, along with a determined will to improve. So what I am saying is that true spiritual growth is careful, patient, deliberate, and sober. It is not a thing of momentary passion or enthusiasm.
You are mindful of your late father’s wisdom, that “something of value, you have to work for.” I am saying the same thing. A passionate sermon can actually begin this process. However, it will proceed not in the excited mood of the preacher, but as I have said.
