“…do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN? For you have been bought with a price: therefore, glorify God in your body.” (1 Corin. 6:19-20)
The first step to being filled with all the fullness of God is to understand that we are NOT OUR OWN…we belong to God.
“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but CHRIST LIVES IN ME; and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE BY FAITH in the Son of God, who loves me and gave Himself up for me.” (Gal. 2:20)
Secondly, we are crucified with Christ and He lives in us…
“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, SO THAT CHRIST MAY DWELL IN YOUR HEARTS THROUGH FAITH. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power… TO GRASP HOW WIDE, LONG, HIGH AND DEEP IS THE LOVE OF CHRIST, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may BE FILLED TO THE MEASURE OF ALL THE FULLNESS OF GOD.” (Eph. 3:16-19)
Pray this prayer: “Abba Father I want to intimately “know” the full capacity of Christ’s love this will take a lot of ‘POWER and ROOM’, knowing that love is beyond what I can understand, it goes beyond knowledge. Give me POWER to ‘know’ the capacity of this love so I have ROOM to be completely filled with ALL THE FULLNESS OF GOD!”
MAKE ROOM IN OUR HEART AND GIVE US POWER TO RECEIVE MORE GRACE IN TIME OF NEED.
