The Cup Overflows

The Cup Overflows…

We were dining one evening with friends. One of them asked how to overcome sin. Grandfather filled his glass with water and asked, “Can you pour your drink into this glass?” “No,” the one answered, “How could I? The glass is full.” “Exactly!” said Grandfather, “And that’s your answer.”

The answer is in the cup being full. You don’t overcome sin by trying not to sin, or temptation by trying not to be tempted. It doesn’t matter how much you try – if your cup is empty, you’re going to be vulnerable to sin. But if you fill yourself up with God, you won’t have any room to be filled with anything else. And even better than a full cup, is an overflowing cup.

An overflowing cup can hardly be touched or polluted. If you fill yourself up with God and overflow with His joy, His Spirit, His presence, and His love, the enemy won’t be able to do anything – and there won’t be any sin you can’t overcome. So practice the secret of overcoming all sin. It’s as simple as an overflowing cup.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Psalm 23:5

Fill yourself up with God and overflow with His joy, His Spirit, His presence, and His love…

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
