Led By Love

What mindset defines your path?

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

1  There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

The case is closed concerning your past and it is time to move on.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,

4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Since GOD is LOVE, HIS SPIRIT is Love as well.  When we walk according to THE SPIRIT, it can only occur by walking in Love!

5  Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.

In other words, those who are controlled by Agape Love think about things that that please THE SPIRIT.

6 So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to Life and peace.

7 For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will.

8 That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.

We all want to walk in Life and peace but it can only be accomplished by walking in Agape Love.  It is our decision what path we take.

9  But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to Him at all.)

Your spirit is now perfected and complete IN CHRIST.  It is the mind that must be renewed by The Word.  Our mind is where we decide which path to pursue.

10 And Christ lives within you, so even though your body will die because of sin, the Spirit gives you Life because you have been made right with God.

11 The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, He will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.

We must learn to disregard what the body is telling us because it has not been perfected.

12 Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do.

13 For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live.

14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.

Said another way, all those who are led by the Love of GOD are children of GOD.

FATHER had me write all three books to bring us into maturity as Sons and Daughters of GOD.  I take no credit for the book.  The Holy Spirit led me to write each chapter over the last five years.  HE gave me the title in January of 2018.  I didn’t know if I would ever complete it but now is the time!
