Friday’s with Fee – The Spirit is the key to all of Christian Life

Gordon Fee “Paul, the Spirit, and the People of God” 1996 Hendrickson

Paul does not see life in the Spirit as the result of a single experience of the Spirit at the entry point.  He simply did not have the static view of the Spirit that so many later Christians seem to have – that the Spirit is “given” once for all at conversion, and after that we are pretty much left to our own devices to live out the Christian life.  For Paul the Spirit is the key to all of Christian life, and he implies , frequently there are further, ongoing times of receiving the Spirit’s empowering.  pg 201
