How Can I Be Filled With The Holy Spirit
Bible Text: Ephesians 5:18 | Preacher: Pastor Steve Breedlove | The Spirit-filled life is vital for every Christian to understand and practice. As often has been said, the Christian life is not difficult; it is absolutely impossible, apart from the power of the Holy Spirit.
What is the filling of the Holy Spirit?
-TO BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT IS TO LIVE WITH EVERY CONSCIOUS AREA OF YOUR LIFE YIELDED TO THE SPIRIT’S CONTROL.
-TO BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT IS TO LIVE WITH THE WORD OF GOD PERMEATING EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE.
-TO BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT INVOLVES AN EVER-DEEPENING RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THROUGH THE SPIRIT.
-TO BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT INCLUDES SPECIAL TIMES OF GOD GRANTING EXTRAORDINARY POWER FOR SERVICE.
WHAT IT IS NOT:
-THE FILLING OF THE SPIRIT IS NOT THE SAME AS THE BAPTISM OR SEALING OF THE SPIRIT.
-THE FILLING OF THE SPIRIT IS NOT A ONCE AND FOR ALL EXPERIENCE THAT ELEVATES YOU TO A HIGHER PLANE.
-THE FILLING OF THE SPIRIT IS NOT AN IRRATIONAL, EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE.
