The Work of the Holy Spirit
Well, the dogmatic person is kind of like the rhino. He or she just enters the maze and knocks down ten fences and a windmill and doesn’t even really realize it or understand it. They’re just dogmatic. Who is dogmatic in the Bible? How about the Apostle Paul before he became a Christ follower? Remember Paul? Man, before this guy knew Jesus his name was Saul and he was killing Christians. He was an accomplice to a murder. He thought his way was the only way, and he abused all these folks. And then one day, he met Jesus face to face and he was tenderized by the work of the Holy Spirit. God totally changed his life.
Here’s another one, and you’ll love this last one we talk about. The procrastinator. “Well, Ed, you know I’m not, you know I’m not sure I’m a procrastinator. Maybe I’ll decide in a couple of weeks whether or not I am.” Procrastinators wait to the last minute, you know. They put things off. Sometimes they do that because of fear. Other times they do it because of laziness. They just put things off. “Well, tomorrow I’ll work on my marriage. You know, tomorrow I’ll get right with God. Tomorrow I’ll get involved at Fellowship Church. Tomorrow I’ll join the church. Tomorrow I’ll begin to handle my finances in a Godly way, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow.”
