"The Plentiful Supply"

I recently heard the story of a man who traveled to Florida looking forward to fresh squeezed orange juice. It was a hot summer day and he went into the store where he always purchased the juice. He placed his order, only to be told there wasn't any. The juice machine was broken.

Disappointed, he left the store – only to begin laughing. The store was surrounded by orange trees loaded with fresh ripe oranges.

Oranges were everywhere but there was no juice to drink.

As a Christian, we can be filled, not with orange juice, but with the Holy Spirit and with the fruits of the Spirit. There is plenty to fill us to overflowing. The Holy Spirit "machine" is never broken. The supply never runs out.

However, the Holy Spirit never forces Himself on us. We need to reach out and allow it to fill us. If we reach out, there is a plentiful supply.
