18.And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,
19.speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord (Eph5:18-19).
The Holy Spirit from heaven above dwelling inside a believer is what makes the difference in this world! From the physical front we may look like everybody on earth. On the outside we appear the same but a believer and a non believer are not the same at all.
What makes a believer distinct from a non believer is what is on the inside!!! The believers have the Holy Spirit on the inside while the non believer have other spirits in their lives.
What is on the inside of you is what determines the kind of life you lead. Our text says, “…Be filled with Spirit“, and then see the results of being full of the Holy Spirit, “speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord“. When a believer is full of the Holy Spirit, his /her life will be full of joy and the joy of the Lord will cause the believer to rejoice, sing, dance, laugh etc.
While the unbelievers will be groaning, worrying, murmuring, perplexed, wondering , sorrowing, ….the believers will be rejoicing, singing, dancing, laughing etc.
We live in the same world, same situations, pass through the same fires and storms but the world or unbelievers are sorrowing while the believers are rejoicing…
Don’t let anything in this world and in this age mess up your party in the Holy Spirit…Be filled with the Holy Spirit and let the holy party continue despite all that’s going in this world!
