Word and Spirit

  |  0 Comments

Being thoroughly grounded in the Word of God while being led by the Holy Spirit…
It is like learning to operate a sailboat. There are times when you put up the sail to catch the wind so it can drive you along from one point to the next. (The wind represents the moving of the Holy Spirit who guides us and provides us with power for the journey) At other times we need to enter the harbour, drop the anchor and be at rest. (The anchor symbolises the Word of God. We need to take time to study and meditate on God’s Word to renew our minds and refuel our spirits) But even when we put up the sail and leave the harbour, we carry teh anchor – the Word of God – at all times. It is our grounding, our sure foundation. Even as the Holy Spirit leads us on a faith adventure that carries us outside our safety zone, the anchor of God’s Word keeps our feet firmly planted on the Rock that is Jesus Christ Himself.

Filled with the Spirit or Satan

  |  0 Comments

William GurnallWhat the Spirit of God does in a saint, Satan in a diabolical sense does in a sinner. The Spirit fills the heart with love, joy, holy desires; Satan fills the sinner’s heart with pride, lust, lying. And liek teh drunkard filled with wine, the sinner filled with Satan is not his own man, but an impotent slave.

The new covenant

  |  0 Comments

Paul BarnettMoses epoch has now passed; it is gone forever, overtaken by the new age of Christ and the Spirit. The new missionaries hopelessly attempt to turn the clock back. But it is too late. The new covenant of Christ, in which Paul is a minister, imparts the Spirit to the inner recess of the heart and brings a new creation.

There is a big difference

  |  0 Comments

There is a big difference between a pump and a spring. The law is a pump; the baptism in the Spirit is a spring. The old pump gets out of order; the parts wear out; and the well runs dry. “The letter kills” (2 Cor 3:6). But the spring is ever bubbling ip and there is a ceaseless flow direct from the throne of God. There is life.

‘Ecstasy and delight are essential

  |  0 Comments

‘Ecstasy and delight are essential to the believer’s soul and they promote sanctification. We were not meant to live without spiritual exhilaration and the Christian who goes for a long time without the experience of heart-warming will soon find himself tempted to have his emotions satisfied from earthly things and not, as he ought, from the Spirit of God.

‘The soul is so constituted that it craves fulfilment from things outside itself and will embrace earthly joys for satisfaction when it cannot reach spiritual ones. The believer is in spiritual danger if he allows himself to go for any length of time without tasting the love of Christ and savouring the felt comforts of a Saviour’s presence.

‘When Christ ceases to fill the heart with satisfaction, our souls will go in silent search of other lovers. By the enjoyment of the love of Christ in the heart of a believer, we mean an experience of the “love of God shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given to us” (Rom. 5:5).’
