DWELLING IN CHRIST 3 (stream 2)

 
Eph 5:18
18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit [KJV]

(Continued from Yesterday) Pastor Felix began to explain to Segun that one of the greatest hindrances to being filled with the Spirit is fleshly indulgences and excesses; "anything that you over-do that is not spiritually edifying can hinder your being filled with the Spirit". He explained that getting drunk with wine was a typical example, other examples included over eating, over sleeping, talking too much, lusts, etc.

Segun told Pastor Felix that he had been watching too many movies recently and the movies were not spiritually edifying.

Pastor Felix also went on to explain to Segun that being filled with the Spirit was something the Holy Spirit always wanted for us, but we are the ones who decide whether or not we will continue to be filled by the Spirit. We decide by the things we avoid and the things we do. That that was why the Bible says ‘be filled with the Spirit’. It is something you can consciously control. He went ahead to teach Segun certain things he should do to stay filled with the Holy Spirit (to be continued).

Go into today determining to cut out fleshly excesses and indulgences from your life. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you by supplying the grace to do this.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, please help me to be filled with your Spirit at all times. Amen

-Pas SD Abraham
