What leads you in life?

There are mainly 2 states of desire which influence how humans live. Either mentally in a state of "WOW" which the world presents before us continually, or in the state of "Why" which should be our life long quest to seek the truth in life. We will look and discuss the relevance of each factor in our life.

Fullness: Thru the Holy Spirit's Role in Our Lives

# 53. Ephesians 5:18

And don’t get drunk with wine, which leads to reckless actions, but be filled with the Spirit. —Ephesians 5:18

A drunk driver may be charged with DUI, which means “driving under the influence.”
But when people filled with the Holy Spirit in their (bloodstream) life is seen, they could be accused of LUI, or living under the influence?

Both are a modus operandi (often shortened to M.O.) which is someone's habits of working, particularly in the context of business or criminal investigations, but also more generally in life.
It is a Latin phrase, approximately translated as method or mode of operating or modus operandi?

Modus means mode, way, method, or manner. Vivendi means of living. The phrase is often used to describe informal and temporary arrangements in political affairs. For example, if two sides reach a modus vivendi regarding disputed territories, despite political, historical or cultural incompatibilities, an accommodation of their respective differences is established for the sake of contingency.

Or: another expression is In diplomacy, a modus vivendi is an instrument for establishing an international accord of a temporary or provisional nature, intended to be replaced by a more substantial and thorough agreement, such as a treaty.
Armistices and instruments of surrender are intended to achieve a modus vivendi.

There should be evidence of living under the influence. That’s the simplest way I know to explain the contrast and comparison in this verse between being drunk and being Spirit-filled.


In Ephesians 5:18, we have a clear contrast
(don’t do this, but do this); but it’s a contrast based on a comparison. The apostle Paul could have told us not to lose our temper but to be filled with the Spirit. He could have said, “Don’t hate your neighbor, but be filled with the Spirit.”


Yet the contrast is between being drunk and being Spirit-filled.

This is the third time the New Testament mentions this parallel.

We read in Luke 1:15 that John the Baptist “will be great in the sight of the Lord and will never drink wine or beer. He will be filled with the Holy Spirit from his mother’s womb.” And on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit burst upon the 120 believers in the upper room, people scoffed, “They’re full of new wine!” But Peter responded, “These people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it’s only nine in the morning. On the contrary, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel: ‘And it will be in the last days, says God, that I will pour out My Spirit’” (Acts 2:13-17).


When we are living under the influence of the Holy Spirit, we’re controlled and empowered by Jesus Christ, and He has full access and influence in every corner and quadrant of our lives. Being Spirit-filled is being Christ-centered.

It means that Jesus controls our spirit and thus is living His life through us. It has an exuberance that could almost be compared with being under the influence of alcohol or some psychedelic drugs.
Don’t get drunk with wine, which leads to reckless actions, but be filled with the Spirit.

===========

On a hot South Carolina evening in September 1981, I learned about being filled with the Spirit. Kneeling at an old sofa at the end of an upstairs dormitory hallway, I asked the Lord, as best I could, to take control of my life and fill me with Himself and with His Spirit.
I felt no electrical charges; but when I went to bed that night, I could hardly sleep. I was tremendously excited about Jesus Christ, and I couldn’t wait till the next morning to tell someone that I had given myself fully to Him. I’ve never gotten over the experience. I hope I never will.

Let us not forget that the Spirit within us is the presence of Christ. If we are filled with the Spirit, it is Christ Himself who fills us.

— René Pache
