Why Is The Infilling Of The Spirit A Constant Thing?
We read in Ephesians 5:18 about the Spirit-filled Christian’s life. It says,
“And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit..”
Much of the New Testament is written in the present progressive tense. This scripture is a good example of that. “Be filled” is literally, ‘be being filled’. We are to constantly be filled with the Spirit. Why is this?
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a one time thing. However, living in this world is a draining experience. You get around fowl language, sexually permissive movies, sleazy music and people that just don’t know God. Spending time with God in prayer and reading His Word recharges your spirit. You’re a part of the world for now, but you’re not to live like the world.
Your spirit in tune with God’s Holy Spirit is what you should seek every day. The Bible extolls us, that those who walk by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. Being filled with the Holy Spirit is being a son of God, whether you’re male or female.
