Stages of Christian growth.
There are times that languages are inadequate to convey our deepest thoughts, feelings and desires.
It is the ability to identify with others at this deepest level, that is characteristic of a "sensitive
spirit". For the born again individual this innermost recess is occupied by Holy Spirit.
As we mature and become more like Him, our natural spirit becomes more and more identified with
Holy Spirit. It is this maturing and meshing together of our spirit with the Holy Spirit of God, that
begins to reflect outwardly what has happened inwardly.
We are indeed a new species of being! Rather than being a product of natural forces and laws, we have
been born from above. As we take on the attributes of God, we become more sensitive to spiritual
reality. This spiritual reality is reflecting what God is doing in heaven. To the extent that we are
yielded to God's working in our lives, even so will we be God's Ambassadors here on earth.
An ambassador is, "one who represents the person of a king at the court of another." We find that in
II Corinthians 5:20, "we are Christ's ambassadors."
To effectively represent God here on earth, it is necessary that we be sensitive to His every desire.
This sensitivity must of necessity begin in our born again spirit. As this happens, our spirit and Holy
Spirit become one. This then, is the procedure for the development of a "sensitive spirit".
