Those who follow Jesus Christ are TAUGHT BY GOD, they are LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT and they don’t do anything on their own initiative. Jesus did not speak His own mind neither did He do anything on His own initiative but everything that the Father told Him He SAID and He DID.
If we want to be pleasing to God then we must be LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. Our own studies and education, do not qualify us to be pleasing to God, we need to be led by the Holy Spirit. That is why people who trust in their own understanding and their own knowledge of the Bible and act accordingly, they cannot be pleasing to God. We can only be pleasing to God if we are LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. We need to SEEK the guidance of the Holy Spirit continuously in every situation every step of the way.
Without Jesus we can do nothing. If we do not remain IN CHRIST, guided by the Holy Spirit we cannot bear good fruit, we cannot please God. We need to be CONTINUOUSLY SEEKING AND FOLLOWING THE GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT to be pleasing to God. If we act on our own initiative, using our common sense and our own ideas we are ACTING FROM THE FLESH and that which is born of the flesh is flesh but that which is born of the Spirit of God, that is SPIRIT and LIFE, that is pleasing to God.
Do you follow your own mind or are you constantly weeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit?
May Jesus bless you.
