Christ in you–let Him overflow . . .

“In Christ you have been brought to fullness.” (Colossians 2:10.)

Fullness easily overflows. The slightest movement will cause a cup brimming with coffee to overflow. “Stir up the gift of God, which is in you.” “Quench not the Spirit.” Open up to the “rivers of living water” that are ready to pour out of “your innermost being.”

Christ-followers are full the Spirit–the fulness of God. Now let the “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control” overflow. Let the gifts of the Spirit manifest in and through you. Let the words of God flow through your mouth: “Do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say.”

How? Surrender to “Christ in you.” Be continually attentive to His promptings within you and then faithfully say and or do whatever He nudges you to. What’s overflowing from your heart today?

God’s light
Brings delight.
Hear it!
“Joy is part
Of the fruit
Of the Spirit.”

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
