Living Waters

John 1:16  "Of His fullness have all we received, and grace for grace."

MB 20  "Give, and it shall be given unto you;" Luke 6:38. for the word of God is 'a fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams of Lebanon' Song of Solomon 4:15.  The heart that has once tasted the love of Christ, cries out continually for a deeper draft, and as you impart, you will receive in richer and more abundant measure.  Every revelation of God to the soul increases the capacity to know and to love.  The continual cry of the heart is 'More of Thee,' and ever the Spirit's answer is, 'Much more.' Romans 5:9,10.  For our God delights to do 'exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.' Ephesians 3:20.  To Jesus who emptied Himself for the salvation of lost humanity, the Holy Spirit was given without measure.  So it will be given to every follower of Christ when the whole heart is surrendered for His indwelling.  Our Lord Himself has given the command, 'Be filled with the Spirit' Ephesians 5:18 and this command is also a promise of it's fulfillment.  It was the good pleasure of the Father that in Christ should 'all the fullness dwell,' and 'in Him ye are made full.' Colossians 1:19 and 2:10.

Thank you Jesus for filling us with Your Holy Spirit, You are so full of love for us and we are so unworthy, but through You we can become worthy as you are worthy.  Help us to love you more and more each day.  Grandma Joan
