In Acts 2:4, we see that believers were filled with the Holy spirit, and later in Ephesians 5:8, we find the instruction to "to be filled with the spirit". One scripture tells us what happened on the day of Pentecost, and the other is a command. What does it mean to be filled with the spirit? It does not imply a state of high excitement, or being perfect in all your ways, nor is it a state in which we have no need for growth. It is having our entire personalities yielded to the Holy spirit and being filled through and through with His awesome power daily. Is is daily surrender; it is yielding to God's ways and plans for our everyday lives.

Just imagine having your personality filled with the Holy Spirit of the living God And being a body wholly filled with God Himself! Apostle paul was filled with the Holy Spirit; he was also a man who had forsaken all to follow Jesus. Any area of our lives that we hold back from God is an area where we cannot be filled with His Spirit. I encourage you to surrender every room of your heart to God. Your time is His, your money is His, as are your gifts talents, your family, your. career etc. He wants to be involved in every area of your life; how you dress, whom you choose for friends, what you do for entertainment, etc.

After conversion, Jesus is our saviour, but is He our Lord? Any area we claim as our own is one we have not surrendered to the lordship of Jesus Christ.

The blessedness of being filled with the spirit is clearly visible change in peoples life after Pentecost. Peter for example, who bad displayed great fearing not being willing to even admit that he knew Jesus, became a bold apostle who stood in the street of Jerusalem to preach the gospel fervently that three thousand souls where added to the church in one day. Complete surrender brings good change into our lives. surrender to God actually opens the door to the things we desire, and yet we waste our own energy trying to obtain access our own way.

Realize that every act of obedience brings with it a corresponding blessing.

The Kingdom of Heaven is like something precious buried in a field, which a man found and hid again. The. In his joy he goes and sells all he has and buys field. Again the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who deals in search of fine previous pearls. Who on finding a single pearl of great price.


The Kingdom of heaven, as God intended us to enjoy it, includes being wholly filled with the Holy Spirit. These scriptures teaches us that we must sell all to buy peal of great prices. That simply means we surrender everything we now have in order to gain the one thing we truly nee to enjoy kings living. The Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy spirit (Romans 14:17)



Realize that every act of obedience brings with it a corresponding blessing.
