Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 5: 17-18)
We, as Christians, not only need to be filled with God’s Holy Spirit but we need to be filled repeatedly. It’s just like the gas in your car, you can’t run forever on just one tank of gas and you’ll need to refill. Christians can’t run forever on one ‘dose’ of the Holy Spirit, we need to refill daily. Christians cut off from the source of the Holy Spirit can only go so far before their ‘tank’ is empty and they stop moving.
