- Being filled with God’s Holy Spirit.
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. – Ephesians 5:18-21All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. – Acts 2:4
-The love of our precious children and grandchildren, the love of wonderful parents, and the love and support of an amazing church family. I thank God for every member of His body because every one of you is important in my life even the thousands of members that I have never met but the spirit that is in me knows you well and loves you…..so much that He gave you his only son.
