Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
(Galatians 5:25 (NIV))
I heard an old friend preach today. He stated that his message was the same as it was from the day that God called him to preach. He has often said that he was always very enthusiastic about the things that he loved. When he was called, he remembers God telling him to use that same enthusiasm and tell people about Jesus. I believe that he has kept the enthusiasm and nothing has stopped him from telling people about Jesus. Because of this enthusiasm, God has opened many doors for him to do just that. Things have happened that can only be explained as God because he was obedient to what he heard the Holy Spirit tell him.
We claim to live by the Spirit, but do we truly live in this manner?
Are you willing to go build a church because you answer His calling? Are you willing to go to the poorest areas in this country because you answered His calling? Are you willing to go halfway around the world because you answered His calling? Are you willing to trust and obey even when you have no idea where that calling is leading?
We say that we believe.
We say that we want to live by the Spirit.
Would you even be able to recognize the Spirit in your life?
Are you so engrossed in your worldly lives that you only give God an hour on Sunday?
What do you truly desire?
What are you in step with?
