How to Have a Spirit-Filled Life

Sermon Overview
Scripture Passage: Ephesians 5:18

The Christian life is a blessing, but if we don’t understand the ministry of the Holy Spirit, it can feel more like a burden. The secret to a blessed Christian life is being filled with the Holy Spirit. It is important to know how to have a Spirit-filled life.

Ephesians 5:18 says, “And be not drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit…” Having a Spirit-filled life is a command from God to obey, as well as a blessing to enjoy. It is also our obligation as Christians because on our own, we don’t have the strength to do what the Bible commands us to do.

The only way to truly worship God is to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Our marriages and work relationships hinge on this as well. We serve our families and colleagues as we should when we first submit to the Holy Spirit. It is also how we win in the spiritual warfare we face every day. It is our only hope for success as we witness to others. We are up against the organized, demonic forces of hell.

Ephesians 5:15-16 says, “See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” Adrian Rogers says, “There has never been a greater day, a greater age, or a greater opportunity to preach the Gospel of Jesus than right now.”

What is the requirement of being filled with the Holy Spirit? There must first be a complete commitment to Christ. We must continually yield control to Him, consciously claiming our dependence on Him every moment.

When we do this, we receive a spirit of adoration for God—a passionate blazing love for Jesus Christ that doesn’t burn out. We also receive a spirit of appreciation for our circumstances. Ephesians 5:20 says Christians are to be, “Giving thanks always for all things…” Finally, we receive a spirit of accommodation toward others. Every day, every place, we are learning to submit and serve others.

Apply it to your life
Adrian Rogers says, “We need a generation of Spirit-filled people. As the night grows darker, the saints grow brighter and the hunger intensifies. And there are people who are looking, waiting, wondering: Is there an answer? The answer is in Christ.”
