For every believer – that has been born again, became a New Creation through the work of word and the Spirit – to live in the Spirit and leads by Spirit is an obligation!

Galatia 5:16-18 (NKJV) I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

1. There is a divine standard that God has set for every New Creations

Remember, after we are born again, God wants us to focus on changing the nature of our human mind and building the mind of Christ. The purpose is for us to be able to live in the standard that God has set for us.

a. We have a heart that is always fully inclined to the truth (Gal 5:17)

b. We always experience the work of the word & the Spirit in daily lives (Gal 5:18)

c. We always manifest the fruits of the Spirit in daily lives; there are no acts of flesh that can manifest in our lives (Gal 5: 19-23)

d. Our basic foundation in life is : I have died for sin but live only for God and the fulfillment of His plans (Rom 6:11, Gal 5:24)

e. We unite ourselves in a spiritual house, function as part of the Body of Christ (Gal 5: 25-26)

2. The Divine standard only could work when we give ourselves to be led by His Spirit.

Galatians 5:18 (NKJV) 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 

The word: “Led by the Spirit,” written in Greek: Ago; which can also be translated as : To lead by laying hold of, and this way to bring to the point of destination: of an animal; to lead by accompanying to (into) a place – Strong’s Concordance)

So, there will be new habits that the Holy Spirit would like for us to apply it in our lives, so that we will be able to live in the Divine standard that He has set.

a. To build the inclination of our heart to be inclined to the truth, The Holy Spirit would lead us to devote ourselves in studying the word, to listen again and again and write down the messages or the teaching from our spiritual father. Make sure that our frequency of life stays in line towards to the truth, so our tendency of heart would also be inclined to the truth (Proverbs 2:1-5)

b. Conditioning ourselves to always experience the work of the word and Spirit in our daily lives, The Holy Spirit – through the spiritual father – will train us to always set our minds toward whatsoever things are just, honest, any virtue and praise to others, lifting prayer/ blessing for everyone we met, and declare the word every hour. The purpose is for us to always be ‘near the Word’ and always experience the flame of the Holy Spirit’s fire inside us.

c. To condition ourselves to manifest the fruits of the Spirit (Gal 5:22-23). He will train us become more obedient in listening to the voice of our conscience. The more we obey it the stronger our defense system against every temptation/the wiles of the devil who tries to block the growth of the dimension of glory in our lives. (1 John 3:21-22)

d. By keep conditioning ourselves to experience the work of the word & Spirit, and follow to the voice of conscience, automatically we no longer give space to the various desires of the flesh, love the world, ourselves or money to manifests itself through our lives! We live only for God and for the fulfillment of His plan! The passion / desire of our heart is fully integrated into the desires of His heart!

e. By keeping the Spiritual dynamics through Building the spirit man, there would be a lot of works/guidance of the Spirit that takes place in our lives – He brings us to unite ourselves in a spiritual house & functions to grow the measure of grace that we plant in our lives so that we can function in the order of the Body of Christ in the spiritual house – even in the universal Body of Christ.

Live in God’s standard, follow the guidance of His Spirit. #ILoveGod
