If you want to go deeper in who you are in Christ, study Ephesians—it’s the theme of the book. Reading further in Ephesians 5 we get yet another Leveler tip. “See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
This may mean sacrificing some of the things we’ve grown accustomed to doing in order to spend more time with God to get His direction and be changed as we behold Him (2 Corinthians 3:17-18). It may mean laying aside some of our preconceived ideas in order to feed our spirits.
Hear what Paul advises in this chapter. “Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation [self-indulgence]; but be filled [literally, be filled and keep on being filled] with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God.”
This passage is a great checklist that all Levelers need to consult from time to time to keep ourselves on track. It’s not so much a checklist about things to do, but a checklist of how strong our relationship with the Godhead is.
