Let's use running as an example (for twelve years I ran competitively). You're running five kilometers in twenty-five minutes, how do you get to the next level, say five k's in twenty minutes (join a running club)? Once you get there, how do you get to an even faster level of seventeen minutes thirty (get coached)? Most runners are chasing a PB (personal best). Considering that not all athletes are created equal.
We as a man or woman of God are training for a personal best. (How to get to the next level?)
2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all with revealed face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Acts 2: 1-4 On the day of Pentecost the disciples of Jesus Christ were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit wave them utterance.
Yes we may be filled with the Holy Ghost, but there's always more. To receive more; John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
If we desire more and we are filled, the only way we can receive more is to make room, eg, you have a cup filled with water and into the cup you place twenty marbles, the cup is full to over flowing, yet it is still only half full of water. To receive more, one by one the marbles must be removed. So if we desire to increase with the increase of God, this can only happen if we decre, then making more room for the fullness of God.
God is continuously seeking to take from us things that limit our relationship with Him, so we can be filled with His glory.
Remember; Matthew 20: 25-26 … But it will not be so amongst you, but whoever will be great let him be your servant. 1 Peter 5: 6 Humble yourself there before under the mighty hand of God, that He may lift you up in due time.
