The Leading of the Holy Spirit (Part 2)

Active Guidance

                It is the duty of the Holy Spirit after God has redeemed us to Himself to help our future guidance.  He knows the difficulties and dangers that lie ahead of us. He knows the maze of life’s journey and the false routes Satan tries to take us on.  He also knows the human heart’s tendency to follow that which is evil.  The Spirit takes on the active guidance of the Christian into truth and duty!

Let the Scriptures Speak

Philippians 1:6: “For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Romans 8:26-27: “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.”

John 16:13: “ But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.”

  To be “led by the Spirit of God” is to be under His active guidance and control.  He speaks directly to our conscience, enlightens our understanding, regulates our desires, and orders our conduct.
