The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit: The Filling of the Spirit

"It is one thing to become a Christian.   It is another thing entirely to become a Spirit-filled Christian.   The tragedy is that so many are converted and so few Spirit filled.   When this happens, a person misses the best God has to offer us on earth."

John Stott, Ephesians

We need the Spirit to fill us because...

1) These days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-17)

2) It is the Better Way (Ephesians 5:18)

3) It Produces Rich Responses (Ephesians 5:19-21)
