Just believing in Jesus Christ cannot save you. You need to be born again of the Spirit of God and you must be led by the Spirit of God. You must function under divine guidance. The Apostle Paul writes in Romans chapter 8 verse 12 “So not to the flesh to live according to the flesh, for if you are living according to the flesh you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body you will live. For all who are being led by the Spirit of God these are the sons of God. For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons, by which we cry out “Abba Father”. The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also heirs of God, and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, so that we may also be glorified with Him.” Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God. If we are not led by the Spirit of God, then we are not children of God. If we have been born again by the Spirit of God, then we have received the divine nature, but we must follow after the divine nature. We must follow after the guidance of the Holy
Spirit and not after our carnal nature.
If we follow after our own nature, we will go back to sin, but we have to follow the Holy Spirit, the Divine Guidance from Jesus Christ, to be able to do the works of Christ and be pleasing to Him. Jesus said that we can only bear fruit if we remain in Him. We only remain in Him if we have received the Holy Spirit and we follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Most believers follow after their carnal mind. Most of them have not received the Holy Spirit and those who have received the Holy Spirit, do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, they are not bearing fruit for the kingdom of God, and they will perish, because every branch in Christ that does not bear fruit will get cut off and burned.
We need to be led by the Holy Spirit. We need to follow the Divine Guidance of the Holy Spirit, that Jesus gives to those who have been born again. Are we following the guidance of the Holy Spirit? Are we operating under Divine Guidance. If we live according to the flesh we will perish. We need to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit to be pleasing to Jesus and to enter His kingdom. We have the hope of eternal life. We have the hope of salvation as long as we keep on following the Divine Guidance, the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Let us keep that hope alive, and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit until the very end.
May Jesus bless you.
