默想:

“不要醉酒,酒能使人放荡,乃要被圣灵充满。”(弗518

静思:

神告诉我们要被他的灵充满。被神的灵充满,表现为:先是悔改,然后抵挡撒但,最后生命“提升”了。

伙计们,现在情况是这样:你们可以选择被魔鬼充满,让神的灵担忧;或者你们可以把魔鬼赶出去,从而被圣灵充满。

当你被圣灵充满的时候,魔鬼就无处藏身了。没有位置留给魔鬼,它往哪里去呢?我说的就是这个意思。

圣经说“要被圣灵充满。”这是什么意思呢?“圣灵”不是什么“液体”之类的东西,装在“你”这个“罐子”里。不是这个意思。被圣灵充满的意思是,作为神的殿,你里面没有一个地方是神进不去的,没有一个“密室”神没有钥匙打开。你“被圣灵充满”,表现在教会生活里,公事生活里,性生活里,政治生活里,社交生活里。表现在大事,小事上。你的钱,你的健身活动,你的睡眠,你的饮食,你躺下,你起身,都与它有关。你把所有的“钥匙”都交给了耶稣。当你被圣灵充满时,就没有撒但的藏身之处了。

行动:

在我里面若有撒但的藏身之处,圣灵就要担忧。这表明我没有被圣灵充满。要悔改,抵挡魔鬼,生命提升。但,悔改要在你诚实地面对你的罪之后;抵挡魔鬼要在你悔改之后;被圣灵充满要在你抵挡魔鬼之后。

BIBLE MEDITATION:

And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit. Ephesians 5:18

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

God tells us to be filled with His Spirit. To be filled with the Spirit of God means first, repentance, then resistance of the devil, and then renewal.

Now, you’ve got a choice, folks: you can grieve the Spirit of God and be filled with the devil, or you can put the devil out and be filled with the Spirit of God.

There’s no place for the devil when you’re filled with the Spirit. I mean, if you’re filled with the Spirit, where can the devil go? He has no place.

When the Bible says “Be filled with the Spirit,” what does that mean? The Holy Spirit is not some sort of liquid, and you’re a jug, that’s not the idea. To be filled with the Spirit of God means that there’s not one room in your temple where God is off limits. There’s not one closet He doesn’t have a key to. You are filled with the Spirit in your church life, in your business life, in your sex life, in your political life, and in your social life; in the big things and the little things; in your money, your exercise, your sleep, your eating; in your lying down and in your waking up. You give Jesus the keys to it all. Then when you are filled with the Spirit, there’s no more room for Satan.

ACTION POINT:

If there’s room for Satan, the Spirit is grieved and I’m not filled with the Spirit. Repentance, resistance, renewal! Don’t try to repent until you’re honest and face your sin. Don’t try to resist until you’ve repented. And don’t try to be filled until you resist; until you choose against Satan and yield to God’s blessed Holy Spirit.
