Read: Ephesians 5:15-20
Do you often feel empty, powerless? There is good news. Our God has a remedy for emptiness and powerlessness. He will fill you with His mighty Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a person and not simply a power. To be filled with God’s Spirit is to be infused with His presence and power.
Today it is sad to see many Christians fill themselves with a different kind of spirit – the one that is found in the liquor store. That is not the kind of spirit a child of God should be filled with. Our body is the temple of the living God and His Spirit dwells within us. Let us not defile this temple with the worldly spirit.
In Luke 11:13, Jesus says, “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” In Eph. 5:18, we are commanded to be continually “filled” with the Holy Spirit. This means that we remain moment by moment under the Lordship of Christ and controlled by the Holy Spirit. Only God’s Spirit can bring true joy and wholesomeness in our lives.
