THE SPIRIT FILLED LIFE - Part 3 Page 4
V.17 ** The fourth characteristic of living "The Spirit Filled Life" is found in verse seventeen. Do you see it?
** Paul says "So then" - because we are being careful, because we are wise, because we are making the most of our opportunity, we should not be foolish. In the absence of foolishness, our lives and our marriages should be based upon knowing God's will, what is it?
and from today's passage
V.18 ** This verse introduces us to the fifth characteristic for this study. We have seen; 1) we are careful how we walk, 2) we have wisdom from God's word, 3) we make the most of our opportunity, 4) we understand God's will, and now 5) we choose what influences us. What type of things should we avoid, so that they are not able to influence us in the wrong way?
** Do you recall from two weeks ago the meaning of "be filled", which translates the Greek word pleroo?
