Wine of The Spirit

Wise leaders should have known that the human heart cannot exist in a vacuum.  If Christians are forbidden to enjoy the wine of the Spirit they will turn to the wine of the flesh.  Christ died for our hearts and the Holy Spirit wants to come and satisfy them.

[A. W. Tozer]

Acts 2:4 ... And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Titus 3:5-6 ... Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;  Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
Luke 3:16 ... John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

Ephesians 5:17-19 ... Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.  And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
