Being led by the Spirit isn’t an optional part of Christianity. It’s an indicator of who God’s children are. See Romans 8:14.
Repentance and humility are how you make more room for the living Jesus in your heart and mind. When people try to a analyze Jesus, they disagree. When they surrender to and obey Him, they discover unity.
Now is the time for Christians to worship and be led by the Spirit. There’s no need to squabble.
When Jesus is allowed to be present in a human heart, He continually makes His presence known. If the reality of Jesus’ presence isn’t alive in your personal experience, you’ve missing out.
Rivers of living water flow from Christ-followers. Ekklesia (Jesus’ town hall meeting) is God’s forum to learn to freely express those Holy Spirit rivers. Some Christians are coming back to ekklesia & it’s all about Jesus and being led by His Spirit.
Knowledge alone achieves nothing but pride. Information unapplied is useless.
Knowledge doesn’t change hearts; compassion does. Perhaps a curriculum that doesn’t include a course on compassion is incomplete.
Compassion pays great dividends, not with cash, but with the mystical delight of human heart connection. If you have an attitude of compassion when you meet people, you’ll like them better than if you have an attitude of suspicion.
A compassionate heart facilitates interpersonal connection. A suspicious mind hinders it.
We learn to follow Jesus by doing it, not by listening to Sunday lectures about following Him. Church was a 4th century compromise with the Roman Empire, when Christianity received government approval and was institutionalized.
To be motivated and moved by your desires is to surrender your freedom and become enslaved to their demands. To obey the the Holy Spirit is true liberty.
