A Word From
The Pastor: Dr. Timothy Nelson
...be filled with the Spirit.
In his book “What is a Healthy Church Member”, author,
Thabiti Anyabwilw said, “a healthy church member is to
be filled to overflowing with the gospel of Jesus
Christ–that is, Gospel-Saturated.”
In Ephesians 5:18, the Apostle Paul wrote, “Do not
get drunk with wine which leads to debauchery [or
dissipation] but be filled with the Holy Spirit.”
Paul used an unusual comparison, but, surely one the
Ephesian believers could clearly understand. If one is
to be under the influence of anything, let it NOT be any
substance, but let it be the Spirit of God. To be filled
with the Spirit means to be saturated with the Gospel. A
Gospel-saturated disciple of Christ is one who visibly
manifests the fruit of the Spirit, submits to the
ministry and manifestation gifts of the Spirit and
boldly gives witness to the good news of Jesus Christ.
Be a Gospel-saturated person for the glory of God and
the good of the kingdom of God.
