It is a serious mistake to suppose that to be filled with
the Spirit of Jesus Christ is a kind of spiritual
inebriation in which we lose control of ourselves. On the
contrary, 'self-control' (*enkrateia*) is the final quality
named as 'the fruit of the Spirit' in Galatians 5:22-23.
Under the influence of the Holy Spirit we do not lose
control; we gain it.
grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
