READ: Ephesians 5
THINK: Read verses 15-20 again, picturing yourself in the crowd of people listening to this letter read aloud (as was done in those days). The writer, Paul, spent two years with your group and knows you well.
1. What do you think Paul is means when he talks about living foolishly? What does that mean to you?
2. How would you go about being filled with the Holy Spirit? What does that look like for you?
Read those verses one more time and notice what words and phrases stand out to you. Why do you think they speak to you in this way?
PRAY: Speak back the words that God spoke to you. Tell God what they mean to you and what you would like to do about them. Talk to God about how well he knows you, that he would speak to you so personally.
LIVE: Each time you drink a liquid today, pause and picture yourself being filled with the Spirit of God. Enjoy that!
