SPIRIT FILLED part 8
John 14:26 (Amp)
But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.
Peace be unto you. Am getting more and more excited as we share about my friend, The Holy Spirit. Spirit-Filled living is about how to live and walk in Him, and understanding what difference He makes in our lives; its awesome. In this bulletin, we will continue to explore more of living a“Spirit-Filled life.”
From our theme scripture, we see whom the Holy Spirit is, and what He does for us, and in our behalf. We are told to be filled; so, possible. Ephesians 5:18b “……but be filled with the Spirit;” the implication here is that there is a measure, or level, we all can be at. this measure can be at zero, quarter, half, and so forth, until we are “full.” I want to be at the full level….don’t you?
At the “full” level, you walk in constant awareness of the presence of the Holy Spirit, and not only that, you are continually hearing what He is saying to you. He is teaching you how to be a productive disciple of Jesus Christ. He will teach you and give you ability to be fruitful in Christ. So, what kind of fruit are we supposed to produce? What’s the fruit of the Spirit anyway? Let’s see what the Bible says about this.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
There you have it. Each one of these fruits is an attribute of God and as such, “there is no law.” Anything short of these; there is law. Hmmm, no law? Check out your SPREADING THE LIGHT BULLETIN next week. You are blessed.
