Ephesians, Chapter Five, Lesson One

THE SPIRIT FILLED LIFE - Part 1            Page 6
V. 6 (Cont'd.)

** Upon whom is it coming?

"the sons of disobedience"

** Does that include Christians?

Absolutely not! cf. Romans 5:9, 1Thessalonians 1:9-10, 5:9-10

** Were we ever in that group?

Yes - Ephesians 2:1-2

** Please notice, what do non-Christians try to use in their effort to deceive?

"empty words" - They do not have the truth, and are left with only fables to try and explain away the coming judgment of God. 2Peter 3:3-4, Revelation 19:11-15

EXTRICATE

** If we are living "The Spirit Filled Life" under the control of the Holy Spirit, Who's characteristics will we be imitating?

Those of our loving Heavenly Father - God Almighty.

DELINEATE

** What have you seen today that would give you a pattern to follow in your desire to be a child of God who imitates his spiritual parent?

1. We should "walk in love" (our motive).
2. We should give our self up for others.
3. We should make our life an offering to God.
4. We should replace sin with thanksgiving.

EVALUATE

** As you look at your own walk with the Lord, do you have a since of His Holy Spirit controlling your thoughts and actions each day? As you look at your marriage, do you think that the Spirit of Christ is pleased with the heart of love and aroma of sacrifice that He finds there?

ACTIVATE

** Let's ask the Lord to help us live "The Spirit Filled Life" for His glory!
