3 Have you ever noticed the paradox of Paul's imperative in Ephesians 5:18? The Greek
grammar of "be filled" indicates that the Believer is being acted upon by another; it is not something the Believer can actively do in
being filled! What is Paul commanding (Eph 5:15-21, consider
Rom 12:1-2)?! What do you think it means to "be full of the Spirit?"
4. Carefully observe Galatians 5:13-26. What do you notice in the context of the
Spirit? What role does your desire play? What do you observe in a couple antithetical examples of being "full of the Spirit"
(Eph 4:28-32; 1 Thes 5:12-22)./p>
