Though apprenticeship is becoming more rare, it still thrives in certain cultures. A discipline that is passed from master to apprentice in Japan is the making of sushi. One way for an apprentice to find a sushi master is to request the chef’s omakase. It’s a word that basically means “I’ll leave it up to you” and is a request for the chef’s preferred meal. Requesting this shows that the person trusts the chef’s judgment and can open the door to request apprenticeship as someone who can submit to his or her style.

Then the Lord came down in the cloud and spoke with him, and he took some of the power of the Spirit that was on him and put it on the seventy elders. When the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied—but did not do so again (Numbers 11:25).

Although the Lord used Moses in the distribution of His Spirit to these elders, Christians are one step closer to the Source. Followers of Jesus receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit directly from Him. And though the elders only prophesied one time, Christians can walk in the Spirit daily and even be refilled. This blessing of the Holy Spirit is a gift from the Master that empowers believers to become more like Him daily.

Prayer Suggestion: Ask the Lord to pour out His Spirit into your life.
