Paul once asked the Galatian church a question. “You began your life in Christ by the Spirit. Now are you trying to make it complete by your own power? That is foolish” (Galatians 3:3).
I used to think there were two kinds of people: the saved and unsaved. Paul describes a third: the saved, but unspiritual. They blend in with nonbelievers. They let God save them, but not change them. Their lives are marked by joyless days, contentious relationships, and thirsty hearts. No wonder they’re tired.
Paul gives the solution in five rich words. “Be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18). Do you desire God’s Spirit? Ask. The Spirit fills as prayers flow. Try this! Invite the Holy Spirit into every room of your heart!
