From Stephen Seamands

As E. Stanley Jones warns: "Unless the Holy Spirit fills, the human spirit fails.  Most of us give lip service to what Jones says but don't really believe it.  We depend nominally on the Spirit but primarily on ourselves -- our training, our skills, our personality, our past experiences, our knowledge, our sincere efforts.  As a result, what we accomplish is limited to what we can do.  As Wesley Duewel maintains, "If you rely on training, you accomplish what training can do.  If you rely on skills and hard work, you obtain the results that skills and hard, faithful work can do.  When you rely on committees, you get what committees can do.  But when you rely on God, you get what God can do."
