Galatians 5:25 “If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. “ (NASB)
If you have accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior and believe in His redemptive work in you, then do not stop there with Christ. Your relationship with Christ is sealed with the Holy Spirit, not just for salvation, but also for your guidance and empowerment to live life with God on a daily basis. Appropriating the Holy Spirit in every area of your life will result in two things: 1) The Holy Spirit will produce the fruit of the Spirit in you resulting in a life that is not only satisfying to you but also attractive to others. 2) You will live a life filled with purpose, direction and fruitfulness for God’s kingdom. How do you walk by the Spirit? You submit every aspect of your life to God asking Him to control and direct those areas. You not only begin your day in prayer and Bible reading, but you also pray throughout the day continually submitting the details of your life to God while seeking His leading and presence. As a follower of Christ, you will be living a life distinguishable from the world – a life that will be used for God’s glory and kingdom.
Ephesians 3:16 “I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being,” (NIV)
