What is a Spirit Filled Life?

What is a Spirit Filled Life?

  1. To be filled means to be controlled by the Spirit. This is a work of God in us that we receive by Faith.
  2. Factors that contribute to the readiness of our heart for His filling:
    • We must desire to live a life that will please the Lord.
    • We must be willing to surrender our life totally and irrevocably to our Lord Jesus on an ongoing basis.
    • We must confess our known sins to experience the cleansing and forgiveness that God promised in 1John 1:9
  3. It is not a once-and-for-all experience since there are many things that can stop the free flow of the Spirit. We must be intentional to be controlled and empowered with the Spirit as a way of life.
  4. God commands us to be filled by the Spirit in Eph 5:18 “Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.” So therefore we can be confident that He will empower us as we surrender.
  5. The purpose of the filling of the Spirit is that we might live a joyful life of significance and be a fruitful witness for Christ.
