“Epaphras, who is one of you, a bondservant of Christ, greets you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.”


To “stand perfect and complete in all the will of God” will mean you are not only under His control, but subject to Him. Some people think being filled with the Spirit is like being filled with a substance, like intelligence, or enthusiasm. Or like a vessel being filled with water; that God’s Holy Spirit is poured into the vessel and the vessel is filled.

That’s not quite the idea in the Bible. The Holy Spirit is not a substance; the Holy Spirit is a Person. When the Bible says “being filled with the Spirit,” it means our bodies are a temple, a dwelling, and the Holy Spirit is the person possessing every room, holding the key to every closet. It means we are in submission to the Holy Spirit.


Some people don’t understand this. They talk about wanting more of the Holy Spirit. The problem is not for you to get more of the Holy Spirit, for the Bible says God doesn’t give His Spirit by measure. You have all the Holy Spirit you’re ever going to get. At salvation, you have Him within you. But when you’re filled, He has all of you. Let the Holy Spirit have full sway in you. Turn everything over to the Holy Spirit.
