If It's The Holy Spirit,
Why Do They Tire?

Yesterday I noticed one interesting thing: people say that it is the Holy Spirit that makes them to shout and jump and dance. If this really is so, why do they appear tired as if after a "workout"? Most of them will be sweating and things like that after the holy spirit comes on them. If they are using up the energy or power of the Holy Spirit, how come they are tired?

I'm certain that they have some sort of explanation for this, though I cannot for the life of me think of what that might be (my mind doesn't work like that).
Even if they don't have an explanation for it (yet), I'll bet they still do. That is, if there's no "official" explanation, then whoever you ask will make something up for you -- right on the spot! Those kinds of minds tend to be quite adept at filling in the blanks at a moment's notice whenever anything resembling doubt arises. At least, that's what I think -- as an on-the-spot, just-made-something-up kind of response!
