SPIRIT FILLED part 9
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.
Shalom. I thank God daily for each of you in my prayers. I thank God you are growing and maturing in Spiritual matters. You are indeed a miracle. We are still talking about Spirit-Filled Living. This is supernatural, you cannot live a “Spirit-Filled life” in the natural. Last week we saw that The Spirit has fruit.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Spirit-Filled Living must produce all the above fruits.When you are filled with the Spirit, it means you are filled with, Love, joy, peace, long-suffering and so forth as listed above. These are the fruits that reveal what one is filled with. We can easily measure our spirit -Filled living levels by opening an account for each of these areas, and question ourselves, am I walking in love, joy, peace…..?
We all understand that we cannot give what we do not have. We must have love deposits before we attempt to make withdrawals from that account. That is true also in all the other fruits….do you have the joy of the Lord or you are overwhelmed by hard times and circumstances? What about peace? Do you have peace or you are filled with anxiety and fear? God cares and loves you so much that He wants you filled with Himself, and do things like He does., thereby completing His image in you. This is powerful.
Please bear in mind that all these fruits are God’s qualities. And oh, am out of space….pick up your copy of SPREADING THE LIGHT BULLETIN next week, its amazing.
