The Principle Of Serving And The Double Portion

Last night I brought a message titled, “The Principle Of Serving And The Double Portion” at Mother Mary and St. Jude Thaddeus, a Catholic church located in Padre Miguel, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the parish of Father Claudio Santana.

The Holy Spirit has been poured out in a measure, but how do we grow and increase the Holy Spirit within us? As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another (I Peter 4:10). The Spirit within us grows and increases as we keep fervent in our love for one another and as we serve God’s anointed ones with the gift we have received.

This principle of growth and increase is illustrated in the drive of Elisha to serve Elijah, the hearts of Timothy, Titus, and Epaphroditus as they served Paul, and in Jesus Himself who took the form of a bondservant. The Holy Spirit increased within them until they received a double portion.

Like the young generation around the early apostles, this generation must find a way to serve the Lord’s anointed with the gift that has been imparted to them by the Holy Spirit. As they serve, the Holy Spirit within them will grow, and they will have the power and anointing that is needed to impact the world.
