Power For Service

A box-iron is useless for smoothing purposes until the red-hot bolt is shut up within it. Its power for service lies in its being possessed by an element not its own. "Be filled with the Spirit" (Ephesians 5:18), the Spirit of power and of burning, and your work will be effectual, and you yourself will be transformed by His indwelling presence.
