Faith and Adventure: Living Under the Influence (Acts 8:14-17)
God responds to faith. When we walk by faith, it is and will be a great adventure! God does the impossible and He can do the miraculous in and through us. The Spirit-filled life is not intended to be an option. It is an essential part of following the Lord. We need to experience the filling of the Holy Spirit if we desire to push back the darkness, if we want to make a difference in the Kingdom, blaze a path for others to follow, and impact our community and others around us. We need to be filled with God’s Holy Spirit.
What does it mean to be filled with the Holy Spirit?
Being filled means…
- He’s getting more of you. There’s no off limits!
- You’re’ living under the influence.
- It’s an ongoing experience.
God’s plan is for His people to receive Him and surrender to Him every day. Does the Holy Spirit have control? Maybe it’s time to get serious and ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit. Ask the Lord to fill you – to rule and to reign every portion of your life.
“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” John 14:26 RSV
