Led by the Spirit - Part 1

SAVED                                     Page 2



** Before we look into our text for today, we need to establish some fundamental ground rules regarding a Christian’s life being “Led by the Spirit”. Where do we know that the Holy Spirit will not lead us?

He will never lead us into sin! If we find ourselves in a sinful pattern or decision, we can know that it was not the Holy Spirit of God and Christ who lead us there.
cf. Matthew 6:13 and James 1:13-15

** Where will the Holy Spirit always lead us?

Into the expressed will of God! That was the abiding concern for our Lord Jesus Christ during His life here on earth. cf. John 4:34, 5:30, 6:38, Matthew 26:42

** How do we know that the Holy Spirit shares the same concerns which Jesus held to be important regarding the will of God?

Because the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ Himself! The Trinity is in complete agreement with itself. cf. Romans 8:9

“However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.”

** For us to be able to answer the question, “How can I know if I am following the Holy Spirit’s lead”, we are first going to have to understand was is the expressed will of God in Scripture. Does Scripture say that we are being “Led by the Spirit” if we belong to God?

Absolutely - O.T. Proverbs 16:9, N.T. Romans 8:14, Galatians 5:18

** Then what is God’s will for a Christian? To where is the Holy Spirit leading us?

That answer comes in five parts, and today we are looking at the first one. God’s will for us is that we are “Saved” and our passage for today points us in that direction. The three sections we have read together point out “The Prediction”, “The Problem” and “The Promise”.

Let’s learn it together.
