Soul Enlargement

The size of a man's soul is likely to determine his success or failure in the rough, competitive world of the twentieth century. And after his conversion to Christ, it will go far to determine his usefulness in the kingdom of God. Undoubtedly there are many genuine Christians who are not doing much for their fellow men nor for the Church into which they were born by the miracle of the Spirit's regeneration. Such as these need to hear the words of Christ, "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you" (Acts 1:8). The only hope for a restricted heart is the mighty inworking of the Spirit. He can enlarge the mansion of the soul; but only He can do it.

Verse

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8

Thought

Are we aware of the indwelling Spirit? Are we utilizing in daily living the power He provides? The answer to these questions determines whether we live in spiritual poverty or in the riches of Christ Jesus.

Prayer

Spirit of God, into my heart You have come to live. Fill me! Rule supreme! Empower me!

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
