How do I get filled with the Holy Spirit?

Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,  speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:18-20
            How do you get drunk on alcohol?  You take a drink…and another…and another…
            Getting drunk means to decide and to carry out that decision.  Willpower.  You willfully give yourself over to the alcohol to direct how you are going to behave. 
            While that’s not wise, giving yourself over to the Holy Spirit is.  Filling yourself with the Spirit means asking for Him to take over and guide you…over and over again.  You do so in your speech, your heart and your actions.
