How Can You Fill a Full Bucket?

IT MUST BE SCRUBBED CLEAN

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever  the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:16-17 New King James Version   

                                                                                

If you want Gods blessings upon your life how can He if your life is full of pride? Isn’t that trying to fill a bucket with water when it is already full?                                  

And what is in that bucket?                                                                                                       

Is not pride, arrogance and self centeredness filthy in Jehovah’s eyes?                                                                                                                  

So would you drink form a bucket of water that was dunked into a pool of raw sewage?   

                                                                                                                              

Of course the only way to clean that bucket and receive the clean pure spiritual life giving waters of the Holy Spirit is to humbly ask Jehovah to clean that bucket and allow Him to do so.    

                                                                                                          

It is neither easy nor pleasant, but the end result is well worth it.                                    

The end result of course is being full of the Holy Spirits pure life giving waters.

THEN, you will begin to receive Gods blessings.                                                               

Now of course to continue to receive that spiritual life giving water you must empty your bucket.                                                                                                                      

The way to do that is to be using that spiritual life giving water to share with others. 

                                                                                                                                     

That means as Jehovah has freely given to you, you are to freely share with others.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God the eternal creator) purge my heart of all the filth of self so that I may be honoured to receive Your beautiful grace in my heart to create a heart of love for You and love for others. In doing this please bless me with the opportunities to share this spiritual spring of life giving waters with others as abundantly as You have given them to me.I humbly ask this in the revered name of he who was a constant spring of spiritual waters during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                   

 

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

    “Of course the only way to clean that bucket and receive the clean pure spiritual life giving waters of the Holy Spirit is to humbly ask Jehovah to clean that bucket and allow Him to do so.”

    Very wise words. . . .

    I like that you said we must “allow” God to do so. It is a very unpleasant process like you said and sometimes we resist it thinking it’s from the enemy.

  2. Please disregard my first comment I only meant to copy this portion.

    • I know very well the meaning of being put through the fire to burn off the dross and am very glad our Beloved blessed me with it. My life is so much better because of it.
