We try our best…

  • We set up boundaries with people.
  • We try to balance our lives between work and rest, etc.

But no matter how hard we try, there are still things in our lives that drain us. We get “fed up!”

So here is our tip for the week:

We can’t always control what drains us.
But we can choose how to fill up.

 Ephesians 5:18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,

I used to focus only on the “don’t get drunk” phrase. These days, I am thinking more about: “be filled with the Spirit”

The Greek word for “be filled” is pleroo, which means “keep on being filled” or “stay filled” with the Spirit. Paul is talking about something that should be ongoing in the lives of believers.

We can choose to drink wine and be filled up with that or choose to fill up with the things of the Spirit.

So how do we fill up with the Spirit?

I could quote dozens of Bible verses and take pages to try to explain what being filled might mean. But instead, I am going to encourage you to talk to God about what this means practically for you.

Here is one thought to get you started:

We need the Spirit to help us be filled with the Spirit.

Your turn:

Have fun exploring with Him.

On the pathway of joy.
