Spirit-filling is not evident in careless, thoughtless, structure-less
spontaneity, but in godly wisdom and in orderliness. It is not seen in
those who exalt themselves (even by actions and words which seem
spiritual), but by submitting ourselves to doing that which edifies
and builds up our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Why does Jesus give gifts to the His Church? Is it for our own personal enjoyment? Paul say NO! The gifts Jesus gives are for God's glory, for the building up of the Church, to unite us, to mature us, and to be rooted in love. Be encouraged by this truth as we dig deep into the word of God.

What is the one thing that potentially could destroy the Church? truth be told...CHRISTIANS! While Jjesus said the "gates of hell would not prevail against His Church," sometimes Christians do the most damage to its body through the self-harm of dis-unity. In these scriptures, the Apostle Paul wants the Ephesian Church to live in the axiom of belief and behavior, doctrine and duty, and theology and practicality. TO lean on one side or the other is an imbalance that destroys the Church and our witness to the world.

The Apostle Paul had a great love for the Church at Ephesus; and this love was manifested in his prayers for them. That they would be filled with the fullness of God, and thatGod would be supremely glorified in and through them. Are our lives being filled or being fooled? Are we rooted in love or rotting in routine? This prayer is one every Christian can pray for themselves and for others.

The greatest mystery ever revealed was not a man-made plot for treasures or trinkets of this earth, but the glorious and eternal plan of God to send His Son Jesus Christ to save both Jews and Gentiles, as Paul said, "Christ in you, the hope of glory." Paul's gospel was the gospel of grace which he received and which he proclaimed. Have you received this grace? it only comes through repentance and receiving Christ as Savior and Lord.
