Are you Possessed by the Spirit of God or Do you Possess the Spirit of God

In a comment on John Armstrong's blog the commenter made the comment about a certain stand,

"those who posses the Spirit of Christ". I'll be gracious and chalk it up to shallow theology.

BUT, do we possess the Spirit of Christ or are we Possessed of the Spirit of Christ?

I believe we are the LATTER. Or should be.

If you don't acknowledge him, if you don't appreciate him, if you sort of see him as a cherry on top of your banana split, you posses him, he doesn't possess you.

And that is the difference between Pentecost and Maundy Thursday.

For God's perfect Sake, Church, Let's get to Pentecost.
