THE SPIRIT FILLED LIFE - Part 4   Ephesians 5:22-27             Print this Bible Study

STIMULATE

** Last week's study was very helpful for us in that it showed us seven characteristics of living "The Spirit Filled Life". Do you recall what those were?

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 the will of God
5. We choose what influences us
6. We sing praise to God with thankful hearts
7. We are in subjection to one another

** Has your life this past week reflected that kind of control by the Holy Spirit? Have you applied these marvelous truths to your own role of husband or wife?

Hopefully, we are taking God's word to heart. The first place that the genuineness of our faith ought to manifest itself is in our marriage!

MOTIVATE

** We have learned that the "children of light" are those who imitate God because they are under the control of the Holy Spirit. For the remainder of this series we are going to be given some very specific ways to apply what we have learned. Whether in our own life or in the life of someone near to us, we must be willing to "yield" to the Holy Spirit's control. cf. Hebrews 10:23-25

Today we begin a two week look at our marriage. As we learn how "subjection" fits into the husband and wife roles, we are going to be discussing in detail the best ways to put this God blessed principle into practice. Please join me now in Ephesians 5:22-27 where the apostle Paul instructs husbands and wives on "The Spirit Filled Life".
