The Spirit as Oil- fruit bearing.
The Holy Spirit will do His job as we let Him.
mat 11:28-30 The world instinctively know to expect evidence of Christ in our life. They expect to see trust in trial, to see peace, poise, and rest in trial. They expect to see forgiveness. joh 13:35
Rom 5:1 The yoke was used as a term for school, to become a disciple. Jesus wants to be the One we learn from. He speaks through His indwelling Spirit. Eph 4:20-21 It is Jesus who is ultimately your teacher. The first rest is a gift, the second is a discovery. When we have His yoke, we have Someone beside us. It's a call to supernatural accomplishment.
Prayer is our declaration to God that we are going to trust Him to do what He said He would do and then rest in it.
Joh 14:25-31 joh 15:1-10 In the Old Testament Israel is called the useless, fruitless vine. Isa 5:1-4 Has the Lord wondered this of us too? What has He failed to provide for us? In v. 2, the verb used means "to lift up." The first thing God does to a non-fruitful life, is lift it up by His Spirit and Word. He encourages and comforts. The fruitful branch He prunes to it will bear more fruit. joh 8:32-36 Abiding in His Word is abiding in Christ. Why do we try so hard to do something we cannot do? We need to stop trying and start relying. Rom 7:15-17 Unbelievers dismiss believers who don't act on their faith. mat 5:13 Heb 12:29 1co 3:10-15 1jo 2:15-17
