There is a noticeable difference between people who are filled with the Spirit and those who just imbibe spirits. The latter is looking to be numbed and get away from the cares of the world. That person looks forward to the weekend and the fun and laughter of partying with his friends. He’s not usually aware it’s all emptiness at that point; at least I wasn’t aware of it when that used to be my life.
For those who are saved and drawing closer to God through prayer and reading His word, there is real joy. It’s the kind of joy that makes you start singing worship songs and praising the Lord. When I go to places where Christians are hanging out, inevitably someone breaks out a guitar and the whole room starts singing to God. So which one are you, the singer or the drinker? Turn to Jesus today and get to making some merry music!
