Growing in Wisdom
15Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
"Being filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and songs from the spirit, and giving thanks to God for everything."
God’s words of wisdom to us:
- Make the most of everyday
- Beware of evil
- Do not get drunk on wine
- Be filled with the Spirit - Galatians 5:22-23
- Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit
- Giving thanks to God for everything (neither life nor death
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Choose this morning for today what shall fill you - that He shall fill you.
Pray with me if you will -
“Lord, this morning of August 19, 2018, I choose You to be the Lord of my thoughts, my mouth, my feelings, my desires - everything in me and about me. Fill me with Your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Help me to live and breathe Jesus. Amen”
