Spirit Led P2
In the book of Judges we see a people who "did what was right in their own eyes." It was a time of self focus and morality that centered upon each persons will and desires. In many ways, we are experiencing a similar situation today. The scriptures clearly tell us that in the last days a spirit of lawlessness and selfishness, without self control will be rampant. It is during these times that we must focus on Truth. In John 14:15-18, 25-27, 15:26-16:1, the Spirit is referred to as the Spirit of Truth. His ministry is to guide us into truth so that we are not building our lives on lies.
- How do we guard against falling prey to the "spirit of the age" as described in Judges?
- How do we gain a love for truth? What hinders our knowledge of truth?
- How can we cultivate a selfless mentality and life?
"Lord we ask for the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, to reveal himself to us. To teach us to recognize truth, love truth, and desire truth to be revealed in our lives daily."
Continue to listen and be obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Jesus did not leave us comfortless but gave us a helper, another of the same kind, who would be a guide for us.
There may be people in your group who have questions regarding the Holy Spirit and come from various backgrounds and opinions regarding the Holy Spirit. The Scripture gives us perfect knowledge of who He is, why we need Him, and His role in our lives. Give them a chance to ask questions, guide them to scripture.
