[Ephesians #UNITY] “Learning to Live Wisely: Being Filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:15-21)
Speaker: Bernard Doan
Scripture: Ephesians 5:15-21
Title: “Learning to Live Wisely: Being Filled with the Spirit”
To learn to live wisely, we:
1) CAPITALIZE on Opportunities
2) CAPTURE God’s Will
3) COMMIT to Relationships
Being filled with the Spirit means we’ve given complete control to the Holy Spirit. As we listen to the Spirit and allow Him speak into us, we recognize that we have access to GODLY WISDOM. This wisdom is vitally important to UNITY.
Take these steps this week to grow in living wisely, being filled with the Spirit:
1) PRAY. Pray regularly and find yourself relinquishing control over to the Spirit.
2) PREP. Get ready. Grab a “Way of Life Plan” and commit to following it. Take the SHAPE Assessment, and find out where you can get plugged in.
3) PLAY. Then get plugged in! Play! Get in the game. Put yourself in a position to have to rely on the Spirit. Serve the local church. Serve your community, your neighbors.
