Filling of the Holy Spirit
The means of executing this supernatural way of life is the filling
of the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 5:18 commands every believer to be
filled with the Spirit; 1 John 1:9 specifies the mechanics. Under this
concept, every believer is an ambassador for Christ; therefore, every
believer is in full-time Christian service, and this does not require a
"one-shot" dedication on your part. Your full-time Christian service
may be different from someone else's because he is in a barracks
while you are in an office; he is in a shop--- you are on a farm; he is
in the home---you are on a campus. Everyone has his own area of
Christian service, and there is actually no such thing as a "layman",
unless it is a Christian who "lays" down on his job!
"The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul."
Dear Lord, how precious is the assurance of Your presence!
I love you, and I trust my life into Your hands.
In Christ name I pray
