Ephesians 5:18 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,  (NIV)

When a person is drunk on wine (or any alcohol), we say they are under the influence.  A person drunk is no longer under their own control.  They have given their control of words and actions to the alcohol.  We are to give our control of words and actions to the Hoy Spirit.  We are to be so totally filled and aware of the Holy Spirit within us that we continually defer to the leading of the Holy Spirit for all our words and actions.  Our problem is paying attention to the Holy Spirit.  We are so convinced of our own opinions it is often hard to be willing to change.  We must learn to be in tune to the gentle whisper of the Holy Spirit through continual reading, meditating and studying of the written word of God, the Holy Bible and continual 2-way conversation (prayer) with God our Father.  Let us put forth the effort to being constantly aware of the Holy Spirit.
