Fill Her Up

John 4:32
(excerpt from Morning Meditations by Martin Wiles)
John 4:32 No, he said, I have food you don’t know about.” (NLT)
Ding, ding, ding. The attendant rises and walks out. “Fill her up,” you say. He removes the handle from the tank and inserts it in the slot. While the liquid is flowing, he sprays the windshield and wipes it with paper towels. Next, he pops the hood, removes the oil stick and checks the level, wiping it clean with the rag dangling from his back pocket.
Worried about your tire pressure? “Sure, I’ll check it,” he quips. A clicking noise signals the tank is full. He removes the hose, announces the total, takes your cash or credit card, processes the payment and returns with your change and receipt. You’ve just visited a full service gas station, currently as scarce as the phrase “Fill her up.” In fact, some of you have never seen one.
The Bible speaks of another type of filling: Let the Holy Spirit fill…you. (Ephesians 5:18 NLT) And Jesus references this same fullness when He tells his disciples of food they didn’t know about. He was full on an empty stomach.
In his self limited state, Jesus experienced hunger and thirst. Coming to a well in Samaria, he encountered a woman and asked for water. The disciples were in town buying food. When they returned and urged Jesus to eat, he mentioned His secret food and told them what it was-My nourishment comes from doing the will of God.
Imagine that. Experiencing fullness without eating a bite. The same filling nourishment available to Jesus is available to us. Food only satisfies temporarily. That’s why we keep eating. Our bodies consume it, convert it to energy and waste, then burn it and dispose of it.
Spiritual nourishment works differently. Through fellowship with other believers, growing in our understanding of God, worshipping Him, telling others about His love and serving the needs of others, we are filled up. But like with our vehicles, we have to keep filling up lest we run out of gas and find ourselves spiritually stranded and in need of assistance. So go ahead, “Fill up.”
Prayer: May I ever see the need, dear Lord, to nourish my spiritual tank so I can become all You desire me to be.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
