That may seem like a strange question, but when you seriously think about how many of us are honestly willing to lay aside our own ideas of how we live the Christian life, most of us do it our way. Many struggle with sinful habits and seek some method or seven step program that we are told will overcome our problems. Often, they have a great start only to fail over and over. Then the person will find another program that promises success, only to discover failure all over again.
Paul says, “If you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law” (Galatians 5:18). Jesus spoke of this unique power in the Spirit; “When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth” (John 16:13). Do you really believe the Spirit is able to do this in you?
If we really did, we would be much more willing to let Him lead us. For most of us, we go through our daily routine and completely forget that the Spirit dwells in us and is waiting for us to submit to His leading. When He is leading us, there is no need for a law, program or method. Because He is “the Spirit of truth,” His leading will always takes us the right way, at the right time, with the mind of Christ. His guidance in our lives will always be based on truth.
The question that we must answer is not whether the Spirit is able to lead us in every situation, but whether we are willing to let Him lead us. When we let Him lead us, we are guaranteed to avoid those things that dishonor God, but brings Him glory.
