Led By The Spirit

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 1 Corinthians chapter 6:

19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Many of us tend to lose sight of this Truth- our bodies are the temple of The Holy Spirit.  We are no longer independent and should be led by The Holy Spirit in all we say and do thus we should not abuse our bodies in any fashion.  As we embrace this Truth, we will begin to adjust our activities accordingly.

Men long for the true spiritual to take place in their lives for there is an emptiness without the spiritual.  When The Holy Spirit comes and dwells within us, we are at first excited but then when the initial excitement wears off, we often take it for granted and lose sight of the supernatural blessing FATHER has bestowed on us.

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 8:

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.

13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”

16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,

17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

If there is one reality we should embrace, it is verse 14.  Every single day when we awaken, we must not allow ourselves to be misdirected and distracted from this Truth.  We are led by THE SPIRIT of Our Heavenly Father and nothing can change this reality unless we choose to withdraw ourselves from it.

As I wrote yesterday:

THE WILL OF THE FATHER IS OUR FIRST LOVE!  THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS IS OUR FIRST LOVE!  THE FULLNESS OF GOD HIMSELF IS OUR FIRST LOVE!  Here is the test, my beloved, here is where those in THE EPHESIAN CONDITION must overcome — we cling to the Lord of our first love, our chief love, our best love, our paramount love!  The overcoming ones do not neglect to yield themselves to the purpose and calling of sonship to God!

This Truth must never be neglected as we are challenged by the constant exposure to the ways of the world.  The world’s solutions are temporary by nature though they present themselves as permanent solutions.  The younger you are the more permanent man’s solutions appear to be.  As I have grown older, I have observed man’s “permanent” solutions only to find the weaknesses in their assumptions discovered at a later time.

When we are truly led by THE SPIRIT, we have an advantage over the world’s assumptions and conclusions.  This allows us to bypass much heartache and pain.  Our lives are simpler and we expend less energy but have greater results.  We are not moved by the latest fad or worldly path.

Let us hold onto and protect our first Love and this is done by being led by THE SPIRIT in all things.  As we do, our faith develops into great faith and we are no longer moved by the world’s confession toward us.  We are truly overcomers.  THANK YOU FATHER for giving us The Holy Spirit to reside inside of each of us to fulfill YOUR Will.
