A few months ago, I entered a shop and saw a mobile phone that caught my attention and I wanted to buy it. The attendant said to me: "You can't buy only the phone. The customer that buys this tv set gets the phone, a DVD player and a free camera. It's a full package".
As Christians, we have a full package in the Holy Spirit. God said to Moses, I have appointed Bezalel "...and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with Skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of craft... Exodus 31:3
By virtue of being filled with the Holy Spirit, the free packages that come along are:
Bezalel and Oholiab didn't get the kind of degree we have now, but the full package in the Holy Spirit equipped them to design stones and other artistic works to beautify the temple of God.
James 1:17 says, "if anyone lacks wisdom, let him ask God who gives freely without demanding for anything... With the Holy Spirit in you, you don't have to be out of job because you don't have skills, ability,.knowledge and wisdom...
Remember, It's a full package. Stop seeking only skills, ability and knowledge and neglecting the Holy Spirit. Today, we have a lot of skilled professionals but the problems of our generation are unfathomable... Professionally, you may have the skills but the ability and creativity to bring bear the usefulness of your skills is embedded in the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
I have seen so many people without proper or with little formal education and they have excelled beyond the average graduate's performance. Stop seeking the benefits of the package when you can get everything for free.
Dear Lord, fill me today with the Spirit of God and the fullness of the package.
