Filled with Christ

The teaching that Christ is our satisfaction, especially in John, makes everything so simple. He’s our food. He is our drink. He’s the bread from heaven. He’s the living water. He’s the oil, and He’s the wine. He’s the riches of the good land. He’s the milk and the honey and the fat and everything. He’s here to be your satisfaction and if you drink of Him, you won’t thirst. 

So what is your response when you are thirsty? It is coming to Him to drink.

“In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.” John 7:37-39

Walking in The Spirit

What does it mean to walk according to the Spirit? It means to be filled with the Spirit, to drink of Jesus, and to be satisfied with the living water to quench your thirst. This is not just once and for all, but every day. Every day I really need to drink of Jesus. God has different ways to remind me of Him. He has a High Priest for me. In my weakness, he’s interceding for me. 

The flesh doesn’t want living water. 

The flesh wants leaks and onions or law-righteousness. So we need to see that we’re dead, and we need to be open to the way that God does things. We need to have a concept that Christ is satisfaction first and foremost, and that is what He wants to be. That is how He deals with the problems in me. The Law can describe the problem, but not fix it. No commandment not to fornicate can take away the desire. You might not fornicate outwardly but inwardly, you will be condemned. You still need to come to Jesus.
