AN AWAKENED SOUL
A man loves a woman and tells everyone how wonderful she is. But he never asks her to marry him. That is an unconsummated relationship.
A woman suddenly realizes how important Jesus is in her life and tells everyone how wonderful He is. She is now an awakened soul. But until the Holy Spirit regenerates her spirit, she has an unconsummated relationship with God. She can’t bring about the regeneration, only God can do that; her role is to be receptive, surrendered, and prayerful, almost like a beggar wanting the Bread of Life.
I know Tyler is an awakened soul. I don’t know of a certainty if he has a regenerated spirit. I pray he does. I think he does. But only God knows in the end. It’s something you could pray about too.
