For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.
The defining characteristic of God’s children is that they are led by the Holy Spirit. For every decision they make they consult God. What does it take to be led by God’s Spirit?
I want to share with you three F’s. First, you must know that you have freedom in the Holy Spirit. Because God loves us so genuinely, God does not force to do anything. God gave us complete freedom. That freedom is the freedom from sin and death; and was given us through Jesus’s death and resurrection. Therefore, we are not supposed to abuse the freedom we have and become bound again by sin and death but are supposed to use the freedom to serve God and people.
Second, we can be led by God’s Spirit through fellowship with the Holy Spirit. God speaks to us through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit with His tender voice speaks to us with the words given by God. Through constant prayer and meditation, we can communicate with God through the Holy Spirit. This is about knowing God. We get to know God’s will through the fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
Third, through followership after the Holy Spirit. We are not our own master. The Holy Spirit as the Spirit of the Lord leads us as our master and leader. Jesus is our master and the Holy Spirit is His Spirit. Knowing and following are two different things. We might know much about the Bible, but are we living according to it? We might hear the voice of God, but are we obeying God? Followership takes humility. Are we humble enough to be led by the Holy Spirit? Are we proactive? Or pro-passive? In order to be led by the Holy Spirit, our own fleshly desire and greed for the worldly things must yield to the desire of the Holy Spirit. He has a great vision for our lives, which is very different than our own. Trust the Holy Spirit. Let Him lead the way.
