Discipleship Ephesians

Be Filled with the Spirit

clip_image002 “Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit” Ephesians 5:18

It is one thing to know God’s will, it is still another to be able to get it done – it takes the right stuff. Not only must a Christian be able to do the will of God, he must also do it for the right reason. At this point, if you have any sense of reality at all you are saying to yourself, ‘this standard is just too high for me, I can’t do it.” However, that would make you a possible candidate to pull it off.

God does not regard what we do in our own strength any more than what we do for our own glory; the only remedy for the sinful inclinations that reside within us is brokenness.

“For you have no delight in sacrifice; if I were to give a burnt offering, you would not be pleased. The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. Psalm 51:16&17

When we are broken (humbled by our sinful inadequacy), our sin runs out like sand through a sifter, and God’s holiness enters in; what we cannot do by our self, God does – filling us with Christ!

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
