John 3:34 states, “For God gives the Spirit without limit.” Take time to pause and reflect on that statement. God gives His Spirit without LIMIT! It’s an interesting thought when you put it against the idea of boundaries. No limits and boundaries seem to be polar opposites in terms of meaning and understanding. But what if they aren’t?
What if true boundaries are your identity in Christ and no limits refers to God’s reach and power in you to impact the world around you? When you know who you really are in Jesus then negative choices don’t appeal to your desires. Remember, we have a NEW heart, a NEW mind, a NEW spirit, and HIS SPIRIT causing us to obey (Ezekiel 36:26-7).
My boundary lines HAVE fallen in pleasant places because my boundary lines are a person not a place, a process, or the avoidance of a problem! He HAS adjusted my options to only desire what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy! When you don’t “feel” like that’s true, remind yourself that it is true! With boundaries as a person, we are also given His Spirit without limits.
How else does a dark world change? We need a little light shining IN the darkness not AT the darkness. The Holy Spirit empowers us to joyfully walk into dark and dangerous situations knowing that the light of life is in us, on us, and all around us. He isn’t shy or bashful and He is more than able to cause us to prosper and catalyze pockets of people to awaken to the reality of relationship Jesus and what He has done! This gospel is pure good news.
Let’s take the limitlessness of the Holy Spirit out for a spin. Ask the Father to teach you how to live in Jesus pleasant boundaries and Holy Spirit’s limitlessness. I bet you will have the time of your life! #boom
