Revelry of the Spirit
In this passage we come to a verse that gets quoted a lot in Christian circles for abstaining from alcohol. “Do not get drunk with wine…” The danger of a verse becoming too familiar on its own is that it begins to overpower the context in which it was written. But the context is important. Paul is transitioning from talking about what God has done to give you new life to how you are to live that new life. It isn’t going to be easy. To do that, you must be filled with the Spirit.
