Bob George on the filling of the Spirit

I think that, maybe, this is where I began to understand about the Holy Spirit. Leave out the word "totally" and I would totally agree with this.

from "Classic Christianity" by Bob George p. 161

"What do we need power for?

To understand the love of Christ!

And what is the result of knowing the love of Christ that "surpasses knowledge"?

We will be "filled to the measure of all the fullness of God"!

There, finally, was the answer I was looking for, a practical explanation of what it means to be filled with the Spirit:

To be filled with the Spirit is to be totally filled with the knowledge of God's love and grace in Jesus Christ."
