Walking in the Spirit

April 1, 2012


 

Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is so Loving and Merciful that He gave us the Holy Spirit, Our Comforter to guide us in our walk. I believe it to be a misconception that we are to work on our bad fruits, for the flesh is weak but the Spirit is strong. We can never change our bad habit by ourselves only through the Grace of Jesus Christ and His gift of the Holy Spirit. It is the Spirit that will mold us to be Christ like.

I believe there is only one way to gain the Fruits of the Spirit and that is to Walk in The Spirit. (Galatians 5) This is one of the hardest things for all Christians for as I said the flesh is weak. It is in that weakness that the evil one takes advantage of us and traps us into walking in the flesh and production the bad fruits. When one walks in the Spirit they can only produce good Fruits.

To walk in the Spirit we must abide in Christ and imitate Christ. (John 15) Jesus was always in constant communication with God Our Father. I do NOT believe for one moment, that His mind ever wavered from God not like ours. If we are to be imitators of Christ actions the first thing we must do is be in constant prayer and praise. (1 Thessalonians 5) For then we will continue to walk in the Spirit for our minds will be one with God’s and we will be abiding in Christ.

It is only when we learn to continuously Walk in the Spirit that Good fruits will be all that spring forth from us and bad fruits will be nil. This is not an easy feat at first for we are sinful creatures who have emotions and desires; we are also naturally self-centred creatures. Since we are these creatures we can give into our fleshly actions and reactions very easily.

That is why we need to train our mind to be focus continually on our Lord and Saviour Jesus and all things that are good and pleasant for the mind. We must resist all that is evil. For once our minds focus on evil it is no longer focused on God then our fruit turns bad.

We all Fall short of the Glory of God for we are all sinners especially in the mind (thoughts).

Our carnal mind can spring forth many evil thoughts and imaginations which fills our hearts with the wrong spirit and desires. We are all guilty of this to some extent or another. We just have to look at Hollywood and see what the carnal mind is capable of.

We all have to learn to discipline our thoughts and imaginations so that they are always on God. We are to train ourselves how to react so when evil thoughts or situations which may causes us to react in the way of the flesh our focus will be on God instead. That way we will act or react in The Spirit not the Flesh.

One thing we must all do is pray before we post or say anything. If you start to feel or have evil thoughts then remove yourself from the situation even if it is only mentally and meditate on the Lord and all the blessing He bestows and Praise His Holy Name. Be slow to react and continue to focus on the Lord.

In conclusion, if we abide in Jesus, He will abide in us and we will produce much good Fruit. We will be the light of the World and the Salt of the Earth. (Matthew 5). Our struggles are not with situations but walking continually in The Spirit and not in flesh during our situations.

So when we see a fellow Christian we know knows Christ producing bad fruit, it is our job to loving bring their minds back to the Love of Christ through Prayers and Praises as well as lovingly encourage them. ” but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5 and Galatians 6)

If we feel ourselves thinking or acting carnally then it is up to us to stop and meditate on the Lord and all His Goodness.

But we can never Judge ones hearts or situations we can only help them by bring them back to one mind within Christ. (Philippians 2)

We all will have struggles to continually walk in The Spirit for the evil one wants us to listen to him and will use all different situations to defeat our Walk. The main thing is to recognize when we are about to and turn our minds and hearts upon the Lord and always repent.

 

I hope this makes senses for I find it really hard to write what is placed on my hear

May the Spirit of the Lord Guide us to walk in The Spirit so that our Fruits will be pleasant and worthy sacrifice for the Lord our God…
