Receiving the Supply of the Spirit

10 Feb 2016

Galatians 3:5—“He therefore who bountifully supplies to you the Spirit and does works of power among you, does He do it out of the works of law or out of the hearing of faith?”

Note 1 on bountifully supplies: “The Greek word means supplies fully, bountifully, and liberally. See Phil. 1:19. On God’s side, He supplies the Spirit bountifully; on our side, we receive the Spirit. Day by day a marvelous divine transmission takes place: God supplies and we receive. The way to open ourselves to this heavenly transmission to receive the supply of the all-inclusive life-giving Spirit is to exercise our spirit to pray and call on the Lord.”

Cross-reference “a” on supplies directs us to the following verse:

Philippians 1:19: “For I know that for me this will turn out to salvation through your petition and the bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.”

The verse, note, and cross-reference are from the Recovery Version, published by Living Stream Ministry. The Recovery Version outlines, footnotes, and cross-references were all prepared by Witness Lee. Bibles for America gives away the New Testament Recovery Version for free.
