Acts 20:24 - "But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus."
The ministry of the Spirit has been entrusted to us. We must be in the place of edifying the Church. We are the representatives of Jesus. He was eaten up with zeal (John 2:17). This intense zeal changes us by the operation of the Word; we do not rest in the letter, but we allow the blessed Holy Spirit to lift us by His power.
We move ahead in the army of God, understanding His purpose for our life, advancing His Kingdom. As long as we keep marching, we're changing because faith moves us ahead, step-by-step.
The last command of Jesus while on earth says, "Go!" That's why we often see the anointing increase as we go, moving with the cloud. "Clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered...by the Spirt of the living God...on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart" - 2 Corinthians 3:3
