Keep Your Tank Full
In His Presence: Psalms 27:14
“Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand” - (Psalm 95:6-7).
Most Christians view worship as an event instead of a lifestyle. But our day of worship is not supposed to replace our weekday and weekend worship. Sunday is supposed to launch us into our week of worship. Worship is meant to be a lifestyle, not an event.
To be filled with the Holy Spirit and with a heart full of worship for our great God and King, we must be like a car pulling up to a filling station to receive a full tank of gasoline. Once we are filled up, do we park our vehicle and sit there the rest of the week? No, we go to a filling station to get what we need to leave the station. We have a destination and need full tanks to get there.
A problem occurs when we leave the station. As soon as we walk out of our Sunday worship, people begin to burn up that fuel inside them. Our mates, children, and work burn it up. When we leave our church, we are full of God’s presence and glory from our time in corporate worship. But Satan’s job is to burn up that fuel. The worst thing we can do is to wait until next Sunday to worship. We need to drink continually to stay filled.
One Minute Please
What we do on Sunday must become a way of life to remain filled with the Holy Spirit.
In our individualistic society it is easy to lose sight of the fact that Christians are bonded together in a relationship of unity as members of one another (Romans 12:5). In fact, so critical is this relationship that our horizontal fellowship with the family of God even influences our vertical fellowship with the Father.
