Led By God's Sprit

Romans 8:14

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

If the question were raised, Why is it important to be led by the Spirit of God? God's Spirit lives in each believer to lead, guide, instruct and protect us.

In each of the Holy Spirit's functions has a specific purpose in the lives of all believers, and they are (a) the Holy Spirit leads believers by prompting believers to do God's will and mortify the deeds of the body/flesh (v. 13) and oppose sinful desires that can and will cause the believer to stumble. (b) He guides believers to live in harmony with God's Word and His instructions are designed to teach us how to live according to God's Word. God's Word is designed for reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). Believers are to live according to God's righteousness and standards. (c) God's Spirit will aid the believer in persevering in faith and protect believers by warning them of Satan's hidden snares that will result in the believer falling away. Lastly, God's Spirit protects believers from all hurt harm or danger as He sees what's ahead.

Believers are led by God's Spirit by allowing Him to become an integrate part of ones lives through daily scripture reading, meditating and applying God's Word to ones daily life as well as desiring and valuing the manifestation of His presence.
Yield to God's Spirit as He leads the way.
