Be Filled with the Spirit

It is one thing to know God’s will, it is still another to be able to get it done – it takes the right stuff. Not only must a Christian be able to do the will of God, he must also do it for the right reason. At this point, if you have any sense of reality at all you are saying to yourself, ‘this standard is just too high for me, I can’t do it.” However, that would make you a possible candidate to pull it off.

God does not regard what we do in our own strength any more than what we do for our own glory; the only remedy for the sinful inclinations that reside within us is brokenness.

“For you have no delight in sacrifice; if I were to give a burnt offering, you would not be pleased. The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. Psalm 51:16&17

When we are broken (humbled by our sinful inadequacy), our sin runs out like sand through a sifter, and God’s holiness enters in; what we cannot do by our self, God does – filling us with Christ!
