Be filled with the Spirit
Ephesians 5: 15-21
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise,16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
- Live wisely, not unwisely
- Do not be foolish but understand what the Lord’s will is (v17)
- Don’t get drunk on wine but be filled with the Spirit (v18)
How do we work this out?
- Submitting to one another
See also Philippians 2: 2-7; Ezekiel 36: 25-28; Luke 11: 11-13
Be filled with the Spirit that it would give us the power to live the life that He has called us to.
