Be Filled with the Spirit

The power to live the Christian life

1. When you set your mind on the Spirit your attitude changes. You become light and a messenger of hope.

2. We can choose to be under the influence of the Holy Spirit rather than self (flesh). Why do we make this choice? Jesus' unconditional love is our incentive.

3. When we make room for the Holy Spirit it is evident in what we... express to others, appreciate around us and think of ourselves.

4. Paul makes three points that focus on Jesus...
v19 Making melody to Jesus,
v 20 Giving thanks always in the name of Jesus (recognizing his grace),
v21 Submitting to Jesus and others out of reverence to Christ (the biggest obstacle is self-centeredness).
