Yesterday we learned that resolving the ‘wrong directions’ in our lives, marriages, families and churches is by humbly STOPPING what we are doing, REPENT, and RETURN to the SCRIPTURES, walking in the ways of Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. Today can be a new day. Paul gives us very clear “imperative” instructions as to how this can be a new day in the Spirit. Think about how these verses will change your heart and thinking every day:
“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.” (Galatians 5:16).
“But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” (Galatians 5:18).
“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.” (Romans 8:13).
Galatians 5:22-23 shows that it is ONLY through the Spirit we can bear fruit that will glorify the Father (John 15:8). When we are really walking in the Spirit and being led by Him, it will be very evident to others (Acts 4:13). The Early Church flourished because they allowed the Spirit to have full control of their lives. His power was very evident in the growth and expansion of the gospel.
DANGER: You will never go forward in your spiritual walk by looking back at the past. Paul makes this very clear; “Brothers…one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,” (Philippians 3:13). Be led by the Spirit and experience glorious opportunities.
