Chapter Five, Lesson Three
THE SPIRIT FILLED LIFE - Part 3 Page
** What is the contrast drawn by Paul in this verse?

V.20 ** What is the second manifestation in our life that we are under the Holy Spirit's control?
** How often are we to give thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ?

is to be singing praises to God with a thankful heart, but what is the
quickest path to allowing the Holy Spirit this much control of our hearts?
