We who are equipped by the Holy Spirit are called to step out into the nonbelieving world in the pattern of Pentecost. We are called to wage spiritual battle with redemptive love, aimed at freeing our enemies, by the power of the Holy Spirit. And the result is something we cannot know beforehand. They may harden like Saul or soften like the Jews at Pentecost. But either way, our calling is to be faithful to the Spirit who has been poured out upon us. We can do nothing on our own. But the Spirit of God? Nothing is impossible for him.
