Be Filled

...Be filled with the Spirit. Ephesians 5:18b

The promise of the Spirit is not for great or exceptional 
Christians, but for any Christian who yields himself to God. 
Paul addressed everyday Christian believers at Ephesus: 
husband, wife, parent, child, master, slave. He encouraged 
all to live lives full of the divine Holy Spirit, full from within.

What this command to be filled with the Spirit meant in 
Ephesus, it means in England, it means to the one who 
is writing these words in his study at Cambridge, and to 
his brother in Christ who reads them, wherever and when-
ever God has bid him dwell.
Hendley Moule 1841-1920
Moule was a popular leader of the evangelical wing of the
Church of England and a speaker at Keswick conventions.

I must be filled. It is absolutely necessary.
I may be filled. God has made it blessedly possible.
I want to be filled. It is eminently desirable.
I will be filled. It is so blessedly certain.
Andrew Murray 1828-1917
Murray was a South African clergyman who strongly in-
fluenced the missionary movement to South Africa. Today
he is largely remembered for his many devotional books,
still in print and still strong sellers.
