“Be Filled”

 “…be filled with the Spirit.” Ephesians 5:18.

Is the glass half empty or half full?  Put some pebbles in the glass and then fill it up with water.  Is it really full?  Can we be filled with the Holy Spirit if we have a lot of pebbles in our lives taking up space?  Things that have no purpose or meaning in our lives. 

If we are taking this vitamin seriously, we will clean out the pebbles so we can be filled with the Holy Spirit.  What does He do in our lives?  He guides us into all truth.  He teaches us about Jesus and His sacrifice for our sins.  He comforts us.  He empowers us.  He quickens our mortal bodies.    He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment to come.  (Read John chapter 16) 

If we allowed the Holy Spirit to fill us every day, what would our lives be?  Would we have the strength to witness, to serve, to help and willing to do whatever He led us to do?  He will fill us if we allow Him to do so.

Are we half empty or half full?  Filled all the way is the best.  We are to be filled with the Spirit.  Let’s apply this vitamin to our lives today and have the privilege of seeing God work in and through us.  Get rid of the pebbles so we can be filled with Him.  Vitamins help us to live normal, healthy lives.  Spiritual vitamins help us to live a normal healthy spiritual life yielded and filled with God.
