ROM 6:12Therefore do no let sin reign in your mortal body that you should obey its lusts.
GAL 5:24-25Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
The results of the filling of the Holy Spirit include increased effectiveness in the believer’s production, including witnessing, ACT 1:8* (“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you: and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”), prayer, EPH 6:18* (“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep praying for all the saints.”), and blessings to our fellow man, JOH 7:38*(“Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”). As we continue to grow and allow the Spirit to properly function in us, we begin to imitate God, EPH 5:12*(“For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.”), and have the same mind as Christ, 1CO 2:16 (“For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.”).
PHI 2:12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.
Fellowship with God through the filling of the Spirit is the only foundation for the virtue and self-discipline needed to execute the plan of God for the Church with its great system of protocol. A right thing must be done in a right way! Sincerity by itself is not enough. It is only the decisions we make when filled with the Spirit that will have eternal results. Once you have learned the doctrine of the filling of the Holy Spirit, which very few Christians today understand, you have taken a major step towards glorifying God in time.
EPH 3:14-21For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man; so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
