Filled with the Holy Spirit Have you ever noticed that Scripture notes that the apostles and others experienced Multiple fillings of the Holy Spirit. In the past when I thought of "filling", I pictured a cup filled with water, but recently someone shared with me an analogy that better fits the intent of Scripture, I believe. Being filled with the Spirit is better pictured as a sail filled with air. When the wind is blowing, and a sail is set correctly to catch the wind, then wind will empower a sailboat to move. In like manner, when the Holy Spirit is blowing, we can be empowered to do something that we cannot do on our own power, to speak with a supernatural boldness and unction, to work miracles, to prophecy, to heal, to.... whatever the Spirit wills! But of course, such is completely dependent upon the empowerment and leading of the Spirit. So let us set our sails and be filled with the Spirit! Heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons! Freely we've recieved, let us freely give!
