Be Filled Now is more than the title of this small book. It actually summarizes in three words the heart of the message of grace to which these chapters lead. It is not, be filled tomorrow, when we hope we shall have improved, but be filled now in the midst of our failure and current need—as we are, where we are. And after this ‘now,’ with the next ‘now.’
Such an experience of present-tense blessedness for needy people can only be possible as we are given a new sight of the grace of God making every blessing available on street level. It is in this context we are to hear the word, ‘Be filled with the Spirit.’
