4. Be Filled With The Spirit
In the final session of our 2019 Retreat, Mark Prater took us to Ephesians 5:18 where Paul commands us to “be filled with the Spirit.” He shows us why we need to be filled with Spirit, what it’s effect is, and how we may be filled with the Spirit.
“This command…is relevant to all believers throughout the whole of their lives. No believer may presume to have experienced a definitive filling of the Spirit so that the command of verse 18 no longer applies. Short of death or the Lord’s return, it continues in effect for every believer.” ~ Richard Gaffin
“To be filled with the Spirit is to come under progressively more intense and intimate influence of the Spirit.” ~ Sam Storms
