Empowered and Free 6

"Which brings us to the third thing that Jesus did for you.
3.     God, through Jesus Christ, has fitted us to receive all the gifts   of the Spirit.

Think of it this way.  God is the potter and you are the clay.  Just as God has made each of us with our own signature, thumb print, character, personality, talents and skills, God fits us and fills us with  His gifts as it pleases Him, And it pleases Him to fill you completely, lacking nothing. 

As you open your hearts to Him and let Him have more and more of yourself, God fills you with more and more of Himself, reserving nothing.  God wants His people empowered.  And He made sure that you would be empowered by sending the Holy Spirit to live within you.  This way nobody can get in the way and mess it up.  Nobody can get closer to you than the Holy Spirit already is. 

All of God’s blessings are available to you at all times.  You must believe God for this to happen.  You must lay aside untruths that have confined us to a powerless life.  God has empowered you by abiding in you.

And that brings us to the fourth thing that Jesus did for you."
