Not Stopping Our Breathing of the Spirit

Rom 8:2 ...For the law of the Spirit of life has freed me in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. John 20:22 ...And when He had said this, He breathed into them and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit.

We cannot afford to stay away from the Spirit. Day by day, hour after hour, and even moment by moment, we need to be in the Spirit. Do not say, "Last night I had a wonderful time with the Lord. Now I am holier than the angels and all my problems are over." Do not say that since you have received a certain vision or revelation or had a particular spiritual experience that you are holy and have no problems. If you say this you may later find yourself in wretchedness. A good illustration of the Spirit is the air. We need to breathe the air constantly. We can never say, "In the morning I breathed deeply, taking in a lot of fresh air. Now I am filled with the air and don't need to breathe any longer." You should never stop breathing and you should never stay away from the air. If you stop breathing, you will be dead after five minutes. The experience of the Spirit of life is like breathing. We need to breathe every moment. Do not say that you are qualified and experienced. I do not care how long I have been saved or how long I have been experiencing the Lord's riches. I only care for one thing that I am presently in the Spirit. I must be freshly and instantly in the Spirit. The life-giving Spirit is like the breath. We must breathe Him unceasingly.
