Verse of the Day (October 25, 2020)

Verse of the Day (October 25, 200) #BMSeminary – Happy Lord’s Day! Happy 30th Anniversary to Countryside Baptist Church! Paul explains the “filling” in verse 18 with four participles in verses 19–21. To be under the sway of the Spirit (instead of intoxicated by strong drink) leads to speaking in song, singing in your heart, giving thanks to God, and submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. Not everyone submits to everyone, but all are called to submit to the proper authorities in their lives—and all are called to live sacrificially for the sake of others in their lives (v. 2), a theme that will get much expression in the following verses, even for those in authority. Being “Spirit-filled” has less to do with spontaneity and exuberance, and more to do with living a life marked by the ordinary and glorious fruit of the Spirit (cf. Gal. 5:22–23). [Gospel Transformation Study Bible]
