Be Being Filled Up

…understand what the Lord wants you to do. Don't be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, let the Holy Spirit fill and control you.Ephesians 5:17-18, nlt

Are you lacking something, or better yet ..Someone that makes your life alright? Please be immersed in the loving Spirit from above! Why not; what do you have to lose? Hey, it wasn't me who commanded that you and me be filled to overflowing with the Comforter. God is the One who wants you filled and empowered to serve and witness of His greatness! Yes and He kept it very simple for us saying, "be filled with the Spirit."

I'm sure that you already know how any pet sin, besetting sin, hidden sin—any unconfessed sin of any kind, or any hard-hearted resistance to God's supreme authority can impede the "flow" of His life within and through us. Man, we all must learn to deal with sin quickly, before it deals with us ..and puts us on the other side of the lawn. If we do not deal with it, then, our spiritual lives while here will basically become shipwrecked, stagnant, inverted, wasted. We will indeed lose our spiritual attractiveness in the Kingdom and our real usefulness for others. Perhaps you have walked with the Lord a long time, but lately you've noticed that you're lacking that joy and that unique refreshing that literally draws people to Jesus Christ. Hey, no prob, you can regain that first-love passion again as you get alone to draw close and to get real with Him.

The Spirit has come and He is the source of power that we can receive. —Branon

You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me. —Acts 1:8

Like to read Kurt's entire devo ..or perhaps some basic Bible doctrine regarding this topic? Go for it!
