Freedom In Christ - Life In The Spirit - Paul Moore

June 13, 2018

How has your diet of reading the Bible been for you? Are you feeding yourself with the truth, or are you feeding yourself on what the world has to offer? I think it is safe to say that if it is the truth that sets us free, then the opposite of truth binds us up – imprisons us – holds us captive

We are to daily find our strength and power by the Holy Spirit of God who lives within us. I love driving our car when the tank is full. I love living my life when I am full of the Holy Spirit. The phrase “be filled” could better be understood - “be being filled” - a continual process. Just like your car, the more you use it, the more you need to fill it. But unlike the gas for your car – there is an endless supply – and the price has already been paid by Christ. Power, life, truth, freedom – all offered by the indwelling presence of the Spirit of God. And as you walk in the Spirit, you will find your desires begin to change – from yourself to the things of God. Psalm 37:4 – 5 says “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust in him and he will do this.”

Unless we take the time to refuel, we will run out of gas. Our cars have warning lights when we are low onn fuel and so do our lives – lack of joy, peace, purpose. We become more focused on ourselves than on others. These are signs that we need to go back to the water of life and get refilled! Let’s make room for Him today!  Revelation 22:17 - “The Spirit and the Bride say Come. And let the one who hears say Come. Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.”
