Romans 8:14 KJV “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
Jesus became a prototype of the God-Man on the earth. He came to show us how men who have divinity residing in them live. Despite His perfection, He still needed the indwelling presence of His Father. As He grew up from childhood, He didn’t start the work of God until the Holy Spirit came upon Him. This is so because even though He was God’s perfect gift unto mankind, no one can do anything for God without God’s presence who is the Holy Spirit enabling that one. John 15:5 says ‘without me you can do nothing’.
When we examine the life of Jesus Christ in the gospels, we see a Person who lived by the Spirit. This is what brought Him success in all He did. He knew he couldn’t just do the Father’s work by His own strength and wisdom. Therefore in Luke 3:21 Jesus allowed John to baptize Him so He can receive the Holy Spirit. The second aspect of the mind of Christ is that Jesus walked in response to the Holy Spirit’s guidance. In Acts 1:5-8 He told the disciples to wait in Jerusalem until they had received the ability of the Father.
We all have God-ordained purposes like Jesus did and hence we need the Holy Spirit to guide and equip us to fulfill those. Our scripture for the day reveals that those who follow the Holy Spirit’s leading are those who are the Sons and Daughters of God. Galatians 5:25 admonishes that if we are spiritual beings who abide in the Spirit then we must align ourselves to God’s will and direction as revealed by the Holy Spirit. Child of God, the Holy Spirit is the key to our success in this life.
Remain Blessed in Jesus’ Name.
