Philippians 2:17 “Yes, and if I am being poured out as a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all.”
Though striving to be found as one of no repute — downgraded…
till of low esteem declining every credit for expression;
still these gifts within our vessels tend to elevate impressions.
Thus, with grief we bow while learning painful lessons through this life.
Simply stated, crushing selfish Pride must be prioritized…
since such clouds what GOD pressed in us as a blessing for the Body.
Quickly pour and be outpoured without delay, yea, even promptly!
Then those round you shall be moved to do the same…as JESUS CHRIST!
As HIServant here outpoured yet refilled by HIS indwelling,
Devotional: Philippians 2:18 “For the same reason you also be glad and rejoice with me.”
We bring joy to the Body by willingly and fully being outpoured. Whatever our gifting, share generously for we ALL have been gifted by GOD. Romans 12:6a “Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them…”
The gifting Jeremiah was given was like a fire inside him so that even though he suffered rejection, imprisonment and abuse…he could not hold it back. He was compelled to be outpoured!
Jeremiah 20:9 “Then I said, “I will not make mention of HIM nor speak anymore in HIS NAME.” But HIS WORD was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back…and I could not.”
So empty your vessel daily on behalf of the Body of CHRIST, oh Self! Let your name be hidden in the shadows whilst HIS NAME alone is seen! Reflect then CHRIST within you, the Hope of Glory!
Colossians 1:27 “To whom GOD would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is CHRIST in you, the hope of glory…”
For our guaranteed Hope; for HIS eternal glory; be endlessly outpoured!
Amen and amen!
