When you’re led by the Spirit, you’re on God’s fieldtrip. Jesus takes you to special places and guides you to amazing encounters. When Christians gather to all be Spirit-led, Jesus finally has the opportunity to be the literal Head of His body, not just the figurehead.
Modern Christianity is full of “idle notions” (ideas without implementation). It often produces religious pride that masquerades as “false humility” by trying to prove its closeness to God through theological knowledge, religious titles, church attendance, and/or special experiences. However, hearing about Jesus without actually doing what He says is disobedience. It breaks our connection with Him as the Head and quenches the Spirit. Thus, it undermines His literal Headship and control of His body and makes Him a mere figurehead (like the Queen of the United Kingdom).
The Bible defines the children of God as “all who are led by the Spirit of God,” not as “all who claim to be led by the Spirit of God.” Those led by the Spirit will live in ways that are humbly aligned with the Bible. They will obey the Head, the living Jesus, instead of their own desires, feelings, and opinions. There’s no good reason for any Christian not to be continually thrilled about the risen Jesus!
When you resist your conscience, you resist the living God who is reaching out to you through it. View ungodly desires as challenges to overcome, not as something to cater to. Every day go experience, interact with, & obey the living Jesus throughout the day.
