Be “Crammed” with the Spirit
The word “filled” in the Greek language. This word actually means “CRAMMED.” So Ephesians 5:18 actually reads, “BE CRAMMED WITH THE SPIRIT!” You can be so crammed with the Holy Spirit that sin and bad habits will have no more room in you!
The Spirit will give you the utterance but you must exercise faith and speak forth the prayer language. You will find yourself being supercharged with the Spirit of God. Power will come upon you to live a holy life, to share Jesus with your friends and family, and a deep concern for the well-being of others will flood your heart.
Continue to be filled
This tells us that being filled with the Holy Spirit is not supposed to be just a one time memorable episode. Being filled with the Holy Spirit is meant to become a way of life. When you are filled with the Holy Spirit, there will be no room for self, works of the flesh, or human pride. God will get all the glory from a truly Spirit-filled life.
If it has been a while since you have prayed in tongues, make a commitment now to pray often in the Spirit. You can do it in your car, on your way to and from work, or school. You can go to sleep at night praying in the Spirit, and wake up in the morning praying in the Spirit. Remember, pray in the Spirit, and with your understanding. Stir up the gift of God. Start gaining ground by living in the Holy Spirit’s third dimension. When you don’t know how to pray in a situation, pray in tongues.
Don’t settle for less than God’s best. Go all the way with God. You’re saved by faith in Jesus Christ alone. Are you ready for the adventure? Are you ready for the third dimensional relationship with the Holy Spirit?
