John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Praise the Lord for eternal life!  Eternal life is only delivered through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Any other life will result in great destruction and desolation.  Any other life will result in great misery and unhappiness.  Many are moping through life enduring what life puts before them.  It is through the Lord Jesus that we may truly enjoy life.  Our verse today is the words of the Lord as He reveals the truth of the devil and the truth of Christ Salvation.  The devil and his workers have one main agenda and that is to attempt to destroy the works of Jesus Christ.  Our verse says here that the enemy wishes to steal, kill and destroy.  He wishes to steal joy and happiness.  He wishes to kill any life for God and to destroy any works for God.  BUT…notice what the Lord says!  He said “I am come that they might have life”.  Now we know that the only true life comes through the saving blood of Jesus.  It is through His sacrificial blood that mankind can have life.  But notice what He says at the end of our verse.  “And that they might have it more abundantly”.  As a child of God, we not only have the opportunity to have true life of happiness and joy, but we have a decision to make here.  We have life when we become a saved child of God, but the level of the spiritual richness of life here on earth depends on our choices of following and commitment.  He said we can have life abundantly if we wish.  Life is like a pie.  Sadly, many Christians today are only enjoying the dry crust of the pie when they could be indulging in the gooey filling of it.  Life is good in Christ, but life can be great in Christ if we so choose.  Our word “abundantly” here means (superabundant (in quantity) or superior (in quality), exceeding abundantly above, more abundantly, advantage, exceedingly, very highly, beyond measure, more, superfluous, vehement(-ly).  Glory Hallelujah!!  Wow, what a life!  My friend, why settle for a fence walking, halfway committed, barely skimming by life when you could be living life more abundantly?!  We must refuse to allow the worldly realm to own us and overcome us.  We must commit our everything to the Lord Jesus.  We must wake up every day in the reality that we are here for Him.  Our main agenda should be for His will.  Our main thoughts must be of Him.  And we must not forget that without Him we are nothing.  HE…IS…OUR…EVERYTHING!  My friend, decide to live life in Christ more abundantly.  Amen.

Romans 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Faith, it is a wonderful thing.  Without faith we cannot please God.  Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.  Amen!!  Faith in Christ only comes if Christ lives in us and Christ only lives in those that have been saved by grace through faith.  Active faith is when an active Jesus lives within the soul.  So, how does faith get in us?  Yes, it is when we are saved, but how did this process begin?  Notice our verse; So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.  Without the Word we have no faith.  Without the Word we have no salvation.  Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation.  Faith comes by hearing the Word of God.  The Word is in written form and in spirit form.  Remember, Jesus was the living Word.  John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.  The Living Word became flesh and came to the earth to die upon Calvary and supply us with redeeming blood!  Then the Living Word arose from the grave and ascended back to the eternities of Glory to intercede for us who are the saved.  Oh yes AMEN!  So, why has our country became so faithless?  Why is our churches filled with faithless people?  I will tell you why…because America has closed her ears to the true Word.  Churches that stand upon the true spoken Word of God are becoming few and far between.  Preachers that preach the true Word in its sovereign power are now few.  We have allowed the enemy to attack us from within.  Satan has contaminated our well.  America is drinking stagnant, diseased water.  Ungodly men and women have added to and taken away from the true Word and flooded the bookshelves with this tampered water.  Hey, we better wake up America!  The faith needed for survival comes by hearing the true Word of God.  No wonder we are faithless in this generation.  We hear very little Word.  How is your faith personally?  If you are weak spiritually due to weak faith then hear the Word.  We must subject ourselves to the preached Word, the read Word, the true Word.  Revelation 13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.  Amen.

Ephesians 5:18 …be filled with the Spirit

Oh how desperately we need some Spirit filled Christians in our day!  We need some Spirit filled church members.  We need some Spirit filled Deacons.  We need some Spirit filled singers.  We need some Spirit filled elders.  We need some Spirit filled teenagers.  And we most definitely need some Spirit filled Preachers.  In this cold, callous and worldly generation of Christians we find very few Spirit filled.  The saved child of God receives the Spirit of God into their souls the moment salvation takes place.  It is a birth right privilege!  But many Christians do not take advantage of such an asset.  Most just continue limping through life allowing their flesh to make the daily decisions they are required to make.  My friend, the flesh never makes a decision in this life with the spirit in mind.  The flesh is out for the flesh.  When we make fleshly decisions, they are not always detrimental decisions, but are they in God’s will?  You see, we can make a decision according to how the flesh sees it to be good, but is that God’s will for our life?  It may feel and look good to the flesh to date or marry a certain person, but is God pleased with this person being our spouse?  According to the flesh it may look and feel like a great idea to take another job, but what did the Spirit say?  You see, if we are not Spirit filled then we will automatically make a flesh-feel good decision.  This is why we are commanded to be “filled” with the Spirit.  If we are filled then there is no room for the flesh to insert its opinion.  I only quoted the last part of our verse to start off our study, but now that we are over in here let’s look at the first part of this verse.   “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit”.  Now why would the Lord insert this phrase about alcohol in the same verse with being filled with the Spirit?  Well as we all know, the scriptures teach strongly against drunkenness.  Alcohol affects every part of our body.  If we are filled with it, it then takes over in our thinking, actions, speech and appearance.  Alcohol is a strong substance that persuades every function of our body.  Unfortunately, it causes us to think evil, act evil, talk evil and appear evil.  An old nick name for alcohol is “spirits”.  This is because it takes over the body and causes the person to do and speak like they would not normally when they are sober.  The nickname “spirits” is referring to evil spirits.  The Lord commands us to not be drunk with alcohol, but to be filled with THE SPIRIT instead.  You see, if we are filled with the Spirit then the Holy Ghost of God will begin to control how we think, how we act and how we talk and even how we appear.  And the good news is that it will all be Godly.  So how does a person live a Godly life?  Be filled with The Spirit of God!  If the child of God has a God given birth right access to the Spirit of God, then how do we get filled with Him?  We shall look deeper into this tomorrow.   Amen.

Galatians 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Yesterday we discussed being filled with the Spirit of God.  Today let’s look a little deeper into this subject.  Let’s discuss how to be filled with the Spirit of God.  Our verse tells us that if we live in the Spirit then we should walk in the Spirit.  If we are what we say we are then our lifestyle will prove it.  First, to be filled with the Holy Ghost we must be converted.  Only the saved by grace are indwelled with the Spirit of God.  Only the children of God have the presence of the Holy Ghost in them.  When conversion takes place it is then that the Spirit fills that person.  We received all of Him and He received all of us the moment we were saved.  So if we received all of Him then, then why are we not filled with Him all the time?  Well, we are!  But the sin in our lives pulls a shadow over His presence.  All of Him is in there, but we are hampering His stirring.  You see friend, being filled does not mean that we will receive special deliveries of Him until we are full.  He is already in us.  So that brings us to our second ingredient needed to be “filled with the Spirit”.  Commitment!  You see, He is already in us due to conversion, but when we commit ourselves to Him then it stirs up Him in us.  The more we commit the more that Spirit within us stirs up.  Therefore we are filled with the stirring of the Spirit of God.  An uncommitted life will dampen the moving power of the Spirit.  An uncommitted life will turn to carnal decisions.  We must decide to commit our entire life to Him and His will for our life.  So we see that we must be converted and we must be committed and thirdly we must be controlled.  When we commit our everything to Him then we have no problem allowing Him to control us.  A committed life will intently listen to the Spirit’s voice as holy instructions are continually given.  My friend there is nothing more powerful than clearly hearing the voice of God.  He is our eternal guide!  We must clean our lives up that we may be fully committed that we may be fully controlled by the voice of God.  And lastly, we must be conscious of who He is.  Many times we are guilty of referring to the Holy Ghost as an “it”.  But my dear friend He is not an it!  He is a person.  He is the person of God.  The Holy Ghost is the personality of God, the voice of God and the moving of God.  When God moves it is His Spirit moving.  When God speaks it is His Spirit speaking.  When God touches us it is His Spirit touching us.  When God hugs us it is that warm Holy Ghost wrapping us in the everlasting blanket of the love of God.  Hallelujah!  Oh how we have a great need to be “filled” with the Spirit of God!  Amen

 

 

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
