Galatians 5:25 We get our new life from the Spirit, so we should follow the Spirit.

Greg smiling

We get our new “Life” from the Spirit;  It is not a rebuilt life, it is not a reconditioned life, it is “LIFE” , as depraved sinners dead in their sins have never known, dream of,  or sought after. If left to ourselves we would have plunged deeper and deeper in to the darkness of this sinful world. Now I know that there are some moral people, who have never hurt anyone and have been of great benefit to mankind, yet through the filter of a Holy God even the most moral person is a vile disgusting sinner. God cannot by His very nature look on sin. So when the Bible speaks of “New Life” it takes a miraculous event. Every Christian that is chosen of God is literally raised from the dead. Ephesians 2:1  In the past you were spiritually dead because of your sins and the things you did against God.  We were spiritually dead because of all we had done against him. But he gave us new life together with Christ. (You have been saved by God’s grace.)  (Ephesians:5)  Until the Holy Spirit opens our eyes to see, and our ears to hear, we are helpless.  It is God the Father who draws us to Christ (John  6:44) It is Jesus who satisfied the wrath of God the Father on our behalf.  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)  And the Holy Spirit that open our eyes and heart to the truth of this gospel. Therefore we get our new life from the Spirit.

It doesn say so we will follow the Spirit it say we should follow the Spirit. God did not save us and then make us robots. He free us from the power of sin and the flesh, where once we were in bondage to ,we are free.  Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. (Philippians  22:12) That is now that you are save and have the ability to follow the Spirit, we need to first be students of the bible, how else will we know our Sovereign God and His will for our lives. You have a brand new form of communication it is called “Prayer” This brings you into the Holy of Holies,  with an all knowing ,all loving,  Sovereign God. You can make your request known and now His will can be your will. You know have an extended family do not take for granted anyone that God brings into you life, it is for a reason. For their edification or for yours. And last but not least “Worship your God, who by His Grace has given you life.

Acts 4:12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
