In the life overflowing in service for others we find God's deep fountain
spilling over the spring to find outlet in rivers of living water that bless and
save the world around us. It is beautiful to notice that as the blessing grows
unselfish it grows larger. The water in the heart is only a well, but when
reaching out to the needs of others it is not only a river but a delta of many
rivers overflowing in majestic blessing. This overflowing love is connected with
the person and work of the Holy Spirit who was poured out upon the disciples
after Jesus was glorified.
This is the true secret of power for service-the heart filled and satisfied
with Jesus and so baptized with the Holy Spirit that it is impelled by the
fullness of its joy and love to impart to others what it has so abundantly
received. And yet each new ministry only makes room for a new filling and a
deeper receiving of the life which grows by giving.
Letting go is twice possessing.
Would you double every blessing?
Pass it on.
A . . . well of water springing
I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
Psalm 18:1 (KJV)
