AND THE OIL STAYED!
"And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed." II Kings 4:6
As long as there was an empty vessel, the oil flowed.
When all the vessels were full, the oil stopped. There was no reason for it to flow.
Could it be that we become stagnant, that the oil "stays" when there is reason for it to flow?
One of the beauties of the Strategy of Jesus is that the Life Groups continue to bring empty vessel - whether to cell or celebration - empty and God-hungry lives ensure that the anointing continues to be poured out in the life of the church.
How wonderful it is when "new" people receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost!
How encouraging when another empty vessel gets filled with the presence of God.
This coming Sunday, or to your next Life Group meeting, bring vessels, not a few.
