(2020. 05. 31 Sunday) Gospel Project for Youth - Jesus teaches about living water





1. How can we be filled with the Holy Spirit?

Being filled with the Holy Spirit is different than just receiving the holy spirit. All believers receive the Holy spirit the moment they place their trust in Jesus. However, believers are filled with the holy spirit as they pursue the kingdom of God and His righteousness.

Campus crusade for Christ says, “I cannot control myself and be controlled by the Holy Spirit at the same time. Christ cannot be in control if I am on the throne. So I must abdicate. This involves faith. As an expression of my will, in prayer, I surrender the throne of my life to Him, and by faith I draw upon His resources to live a holy and fruitful life.

The command of Ephesians 5:18 is given to all believers to be filled, directed and empowered by the Holy Spirit, continually, every day of our lives. And the promise of 1 John 5:14, 15 is made to all believers that, when we pray according to God's will, He hears and answers us. If you claim the fullness of God's Spirit in prayer, He will hear and answer you. He will fill you.

Do you hunger and thirst after righteousness? Do you sincerely desire to be controlled and empowered by the Holy Spirit? If so, I invite you to bow your head and pray this prayer of faith right now. Expect God to fill you. Without begging or pleading, just say:

"Dear Father, I need You. I hunger and thirst for a more vital relationship with You. I admit that I have been in control of my life. As a result, I have sinned against You.

"Thank You for forgiving my sins through Christ's death on the cross for me. I now confess and turn from my sins and surrender the control of my life to the Lord Jesus. By faith I invite You to fill me with the Holy Spirit as You commanded me to be filled. You promised to fill me if I ask according to Your will. I pray this in the authority of the name of Jesus Christ.

"To demonstrate my faith, I now thank You for filling me with Your Holy Spirit and for taking control of my life. Amen."

Now, if you sincerely prayed that prayer, you are filled with the Holy Spirit. You will begin to experience a greater love for God. You will want to spend time with Him in studying His Word and in prayer. You will want to trust and obey God and His Word. You will want to share your love for Christ with others who do not know Him.”

2. What kind of worshipper is God looking for?

God is looking a true worshipper who worships in spirit and in truth.

To worship in spirit is to live a life filled with the spirit as explained in the previous question.

To worship in truth is to know the truth that Jesus is the Christ that who is the living water and the savior of the world.

3. What should the people who received Holy Spirit do?

They should live a life of worship and holiness. They should not be the one in control, just the those who are drunk are not in control, we are to be drunk with the spirit so that he is in control of our daily lives.

I urge you to begin every morning with the prayer given by Campus crusade for Christ in question one and to pray it as often as you can throughout the day.
