Foolish Things Christians Believe: My Behavior Is Not Fixed Day 5
Where the Spirit Leads
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:24,25 NLT
You’ve trusted God to bring the change of a new heart that beats with his love for the world. You’ve heard the Spirit whisper a name and come to a better understanding of the self-imposed failure you’ve witnessed. Now do you trust the Spirit to lead you into that person’s life?
Nurture the relationship you have with grace, or invest yourself in the project of building one. Don’t approach this with a conviction that you’ll produce perfection. Display an honesty about the change you needed and that God is in the process of providing. This may not be a journey of sermons, rather an opportunity to observe. Offer a glimpse of hope.
If questions are asked, tell them about the fruit of the Spirit you would like God to grow in your life and ask them to watch for change. When they feel defeated, offer forgiveness and prayer for God’s power to change.
Never forget that you can only follow this path fueled by the Holy Spirit. Stay close in touch through His Word and prayer. Ask a brother in faith to support you in this journey.
