Simply Jesus - The Holy Spirit

Luke 4 & 5

Here we meet Jesus as he prepares for his famous encounter with the Devil in the wilderness.

We are greeted in v1 Now Jesus full of the Holy Spirit.

In is interesting to note that Jesus did not head off on a 40 day fast to become full of the Holy Spirit. He was already full of and being lead by the Spirit.

It seems like it was a normal everyday experience for Jesus to be full of the Spirit. I believe more and more that this is the place that God has asked us to live. To continually be full and being lead by the Spirit in our everyday lives.

I also believe that if Jesus lived in a place where he needed to be full of the Spirit then we need to live in that place also.

I don't think that we need any special formulas or special prayer meeting to live in that place it just takes a heart daily surrendered to God's will first and foremost. And simple request for God to fill us with his power to live a pure life and to share His love with those around.
