What You'll Discover in this Episode:
A Call To Be Filled With The Spirit
Those who are counseling, formally or informally, and those who are being counseled need to be filled with the Holy Spirit. But what does it mean to be "filled"?
Being filled means the inner person is flooded and permeated by the presence and activity and work of the Holy Spirit. You are filled with the Holy Spirit and not just born again because there is a critical distinction between being filled and being born again.
You simply cannot counsel God's way if you're not born again and if you're not in God's family. When you are born again, you would want to counsel by the presence and work of the Holy Spirit. Ministering less than the fullness of the Holy Spirit would be less than what God intended. This is why we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
In our Christian way, we’re called toward a way of living where we are designed to be being filled day in and day out. We’ll have moments where we really appreciate a moment or an event or a crisis experience with God, but the direction is to a way of life.
Be always filled with the Holy Spirit! Let your innermost heart be open to, hungry for just the flooding, filling, overflowing work of the presence of God characteristically.
