Because of our intimate vital union with Christ we enjoy all His riches of His glory. One of the great principles of the Christian life is the more you receive, the more you want. If your cup is overflowing, you want more of Him, and the wonderful thing is it will never run dry.
Song of Songs - Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away.
All you have to do is come and drink. Another great principle is the more you give away the more you get. There is no more effective way of serving Christ than when your cup is running over. When you serve Him from the overflow you have a ministry that will impact eternity. Oh, Lord cleanse, and fill me until I run out all over the place with the fullness of your grace.

Sin did over-ride even this celestial metaphor; and though God himself had employed sleep to express the excellence of the state of the blessed, yet sin must have even this profaned, ere itself can be … Charles Haddon Spurgeon— Spurgeon's Sermons Volume 3: Fenelon -- the Saints Converse with God Francois de Salignac de La Mothe-Fenelon, Archbishop of Cambray, and private tutor to the heir-apparent of France, was born of a noble family in Perigord, In he received holy orders, and soon afterward made the acquaintance of Bossuet, whom he henceforth looked up to as his master.
It was the publication of his "De l'Education des Filles" that brought him his first fame, and had some influence in securing his appointment in to be preceptor of the Duke of Burgundy. The second step that must needs be taken by those of us who have been living without the Fullness, before it can be obtained, is Consecration, a word that is very common and popular; much more common and popular, it is feared, than the thing itself. In order to be filled with the Holy Ghost one must first be "cleansed," and then one must be "consecrated". Consecration follows cleansing, and not vice versa.
Intelligent apprehension of what consecration is, and of what it involves, is necessary to … John MacNeil— The Spirit-Filled Life Peace Grace unto you and peace be multiplied. I Pet Having spoken of the first fruit of sanctification, assurance, I proceed to the second, viz. Peace, in Scripture, is compared to a river which parts itself into two silver streams. Isa There is an external peace, and that is, 1. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. If any man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
Kauffman, D. Helps for Ministers and Other Christian Workers pp. Now, a very different approach by Jesus to the topic of precepts seems to have been identified by other experts:. The moral teaching of Christ concerned itself with general principles rather than with precepts. The Sermon on the Mount, which contains the chief elements of His ethical teaching, is not a code of injunctions, but a declaration of the fundamental principles that underlie His Kingdom ; and the particular instances of right conduct mentioned in that discourse are not commandments, but illustrations of these principles.
When He teaches His disciples regarding righteousness and sin, He avoids laying down laws regarding special acts, but goes at once to the very heart of moral distinctions, revealing the general principles which rule all special cases. In a word, He reduced all right action, whether towards God or towards man, to a fulfilling, and all wrong action to an outraging, of the one all-embracing commandment of Love.
And thus His teaching finds its application in every act in every age. There is but one exception recorded in our Gospels,—that in reference to divorce Mk , 12 , cf. Mt , In this case He gives a concise and direct precept; but a precept, obedience to which purifies the human race at its source.

Maxwell, J. Talent is never enough: discover the choices that will take you beyond your talent. Nashville: Thomas Nelson. So we have a choice. We can bounce from relationship to relationship, possession to possession, or career to career in a frustrating quest for our identity. Or we can embrace God's invitation to lose our lives and find our identity in Him Mark God invites us to a new and incredible identity. God invites us to find ourselves in Him.
