The Devotion: John 4:24/Ephesians 5:19
Published on August 17, 2021
Looking forward to the weekend!
Good morning family and friends,
I woke up this morning asking the Lord to fill me one more time with the power of His Holy Spirit. I had to be at school this morning at 6:00AM for student registration. The blessing of Jesus telling His disciples I will not leave you as orphans to live this life on earth. But I will ask The Father to send you a Helper…The Holy Spirit to be with you and in you
Too often we start our day running on empty!! Would you drive your car on empty?… OK I know some of you keep driving even when the lightis on. But…I want to remind you are not a car. You and I were made in the “image” of God! A lot of people are using the language of “image bearers”, but we must understand what God’s image is. John 4:24 tells us “God is Spirit” so… if a car needs to be filled with fuel so do we as “Spirit bearers” we to must be continually “filled with the Holy Spirit”. Why?… we are filled for “speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your hearts to the Lord” Ephesians 5:19 NASB
I needed the fresh filling this morning because I was greeting encouraging families and students “early” this morning and will be doing the same as I hand out books in a couple of hours. Be sure to fill up this morning, and throughout the day!
Don’t run on empty! Have a great weekend!
