The Habit of Spirit-Filled Christians...


 Bible teacher F.B. Meyer once had a firewood factory that employed prisoners. 

Meyer would give them a job to do, good wages, a place to live, and, when possible, spiritual encouragement. In exchange, he expected them to render good employment. 

They didn't, and he lost money. 

Finally he fired them all and purchased a circular saw powered by a gas engine. 

In one hour, it turned out more work than the combined efforts of all the men covered in the course of a whole day. 

One day, Meyer had a little conversation with his saw. 

"How can you turn out so much work?" he asked. 

"Are you sharper than the saws my men were using? No? Is your blade shinier? No? What then? Better oil or lubrication against the wood?" 

The saw's answer, could it speak, would have been, "I think there is a stronger driving power behind me. Something is working through me with a new force. It is not I, it is the power behind." 

Meyer later observed that many Christians and many ministers are working in the power of the flesh, in the power of their intellect, their energy, their enthusiastic zeal, but with poor effect. 

They need to become linked to the power of God through the Holy Ghost. 

But here's the thing, the enemy and this sinful world will do its best to unlink you with God. 

The enemy will keep you busy on things that are least important so you'll feel overwhelmed and you won't have the time to do the most important thing - reading, memorizing, and meditating God's Word.

Think about this: In the last 24 hours where did you spend every minute of it? 

Seriously, put some thoughts on this... 

...and if you think you're not spending enough time with God why don't you grab your Bible now and start reading and memorize some scriptures. 

I can't stress this enough... 

Scripture memorization is one of the best habits that you can develop in your Christian life. 
You have to apply what I've been trying to teach you. So get your Bible and start reading and memorize His Words. 

Don't let the busyness of this world unlink you with God.
