Scripture Reading:    Ephesians 5:18-20

Memory verse for the week:   Isaiah 30: 21

Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left. (NKJV)

“Be filled with the Spirit” (Eph. 5:18).

Now, dear teenager, what is the explanation of such a life? How could a young lady, still pursuing her studies, never having preached a sermon or sung a solo, never having travelled more than two hundred miles away from her home; how could her life so affect people in all parts of the world that they felt a mighty General had fallen?

The Word of God says, “One of you shall chase a thousand; two shall put ten thousand to flight.” Helen Ewan’s life had been worth more than a thousand ordinary Christians to the Church. And the story of her life, translated into many different languages, has continued to bless many today. What, I say, is the explanation? There is only one explanation: SHE WAS FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Helen, who was an ordinary young woman, became extraordinary simply because she surrendered all to Christ and appropriated for herself all that was hers in Him. She, with unveiled face, took time to receive, and thus reflected, the glory of the Lord as she passed from one degree of glory to another. 


  1. Do you desire to be extraordinarily used by God in your generation?

“Now David, after he had served God’s purpose in his generation, died and was buried with his ancestors, and so he experienced decay” (ISV).

  • Helen died, leaving her footprints in the sand of time. What do you want to be remembered for long after your demise from this earth?


  1. Any hindrance to the free flow of the power of God in my life, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
  2. My life shall convict the heart of men and women for God in Jesus name.
