One day, Jesus came to be baptized along with all the others. As he was consumed with the spirit of prayer, the heavenly realm ripped open above him and the Holy Spirit descended from heaven in the form of a dove and landed on him. Then God’s audible voice was heard, saying, “My Son, you are my beloved one. Through you I am fulfilled.” Luke 3:21&22 TPT
Baptism is being immersed and what better way then to be soaked in the presence of the Holy Spirit. Two things happen; you are made clean and everything is washed away. Emptied of all, you become a recipient of everything He has for you. He fills you with His strength, peace, love, mercy, and grace.
When you allow yourself to be completely empty, it’s not you who ministers, but Christ ministers through you. That’s why when you stand before man relying on God, Holy Spirit fills your mouth to say the right thing at the right time, a just right word in a just right season.
So let’s get our morning right. Let’s not come asking, rather empty of need and offer our seed.
All my worship is Yours this morning, Father. My heart overflows with love for You. Gracious, faithful, all knowing, all powerful, holy and mighty God. Saturate me. Wash over me. Fill me up with more of You. I’m not satisfied with visiting You at church once or twice a week. I must have more of You! Without You, I am incapable, but with You, I can do all things.
I plug into You, my Power source this morning. I will be sensitive to Your voice leading and directing. Yes, thats right, You direct my life, not me. I am a member of Your body but You are the head.
