Strengthening Thots: The Baptism of the Holy Spirit Is a Baptism of Love

The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a baptism of love most of all.—Love for God and also for others. Everybody that’s saved has a measure of the Spirit. Salvation is like having a little bit of water in the bottom of a glass, but being baptized with the Holy Spirit is such an outpouring of the Spirit that you’re filled to running over. When you get the baptism of the Holy Spirit, He pours in His Holy Spirit and it wets your soul and satisfies your thirst and fills you from top to bottom until you have a mighty tide of love and happiness not only for yourself but to overflow upon others, to get them saved and filled with God’s love too. (Jn.7:38,39)

You’re not just filled once, but you’re refilled every day as you read the Word and as you ask Him for more love. The more of His love you receive from Him, the more your heart will be so filled to running over that you cannot contain it.—And then, as you overflow on others, you cause them to grow and blossom like flowers as they are filled with His love. You’ll never be the same again after being filled with God’s love power.
