When a believer encounters the HOLY SPIRIT, HE is empowered to LIVE like CHRIST. The life of Christ is not one who is desperate to transform people without establishing A Transformation of HIMSELF.
The Bible makes us understand in 2 Corinthians 3:18 that as long as we behold the WORD face to face, our TRANSFORMATION would be constant ….
So, there’s an agenda by GOD to establish HIS identity in our lives…. Glory to GOD…
But here is our problem…
The HOLY SPIRIT comes to us and invests so much in us, in form of deposits that are meant to fill us up till we overflow. We then begin to create holes in ourselves thinking they will be access points for us to gain extra stuff from the world apart from the big hole on top of us.
We forget that the hole on top of us was created as the most effective way for filling us up so we could overflow, no wonder the Bible says in Hebrews 12- Looking unto JESUS…not looking unto the WORLD for the answers we need.
Hence, we receive deposits that were meant to change us first before changing the world. Unfortunately, we become baskets that release our contents prematurely, even though we are still impacting our environment, BUT, at the detriment of impacting ourselves.
Because, we wouldn’t be filled up, talk less of overflowing… in this state. Though, we may be deluded by the illusion that we are full… because we are getting others full.
Unfortunately, we receive Revelations that do not Transform us but Transform the WORLD.
Whenever the HOLY SPIRIT drops an insight or revelation into your spirit, Make sure you taste of it and you’re changed by it before you think you’re fulfilled…
Make sure you confine yourself to the boundaries of the WORD, It is the most effective way of changing your LIFE.
YOU ARE A VESSEL, NOT A BASKET…
LIVE LIKE ONE.
