Dr. J. Henry Jowett, the well-known English preacher, was talking to an old salt about sailing a ship and he asked him, "Will you explain to me the phenomenon of the wind?" The seaman replied, "I don’t know what you mean, sir." Jowett persisted, "Well, how do you explain the wind which propels your great ship?"

The sailor came back, "I don’t know anything about the wind, but I can hoist a sail."

The writer adds, "Just so, the Christian may not be able to explain the working of the Holy Spirit, but he can experience the Spirit’s power in his own life and ministry."
