From: The Message/Remix: Solo, An Uncommon Devotional Day 296
Read Ephesians 5:15-20 aloud slowly. Here is a link to the reading in an online bible:
Read the passage 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 does “live carelessly” mean to you?
2. How would you go about “drink(ing) the Spirit of God”? What would that look like for you?
Read the passage again and notice what words or phrases stand out to you. Why do you think they speak to you that way?
Speak back to God the words that 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.
Each time you drink a liquid today, pause and picture yourself being filled with the liquid Spirit of God. Enjoy that!
