That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. —Romans 8:4
We must know that the baptism of the Spirit immerses us into an intensity of zeal, into a likeness to Jesus, to make us into pure, running metal, so hot for God that it travels like oil from vessel to vessel.
This divine line of the Spirit will let us see where we have ceased and He has begun. We are at the end for a beginning. We are down and out, and God is in and out.
There isn’t a natural thought of any use here. There isn’t a thing that is carnal, earthly, natural, that can ever live in a meeting.
No man is able to walk spiritually without being in the Spirit. He must live in the Spirit.
He must realize all the time that he is growing in the same ideal of his Master, in season and out of season, always beholding the face of the Master, Jesus.
Holy Spirit, immerse me that Thy zeal will run
hot in my life for Jesus Christ. May I never
stop growing more and more Christlike
through Your power. Amen.
