Romans 8:14

Led By The Spirit

"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." (Romans 8:1-2)

This is the story of every person that receives the gift of salvation. No condemnation. Not walking in the flesh. Walking after the Spirit. Being the public testimony of the very real work of God in a person. This is the result of the transformation that one experiences as they become a new creation. (2 Corinthians 5:17) The fact of the matter is that God really does want people to be different than they were before they met Him and received His grace and mercy.

Perhaps you were too young to remember the days before you believed in Jesus and in His atoning sacrifice. Or perhaps you are one who remembers those days far too well. Whichever is your personal testimony, God is calling you today to be a person who is set apart in His love and mercy and for His glory. And this is not just a remote association with God. You are a key part of the family! "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."

Will you live as one who is called or will you settle for the meagerness of the world? "We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says: 'In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you.' Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." (2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NKJV) Live as a son of God. (VAL)
