We were created in the image of God. This means we have the potential to choose to live like God. Jesus revealed this as He came in the form of man and lived like God on the earth. Because of Him, it possible for us to experience redemption from the power of sin, becoming like Him. This great miracle happens when we are born again of the Spirit. He lives in us by His Spirit and helps us become like Him. Our spirit receives redemption and we are transformed in our soul, like Him. This is a lifelong process and few continue walking in it. Many lose their first love and go back to living in the flesh. This is why many are sick and fail to live the promised abundant life.
Firstly, God did it all for us. We need to tap into His promises of love and live in them. Secondly, this requires a radical change from a walk according to the flesh to a walk according to the Spirit. Many people, stuck in the letter of the word do not know the life in the word. God’s word changes lives, heals, and restores. As a result, all these benefits accessed through His Spirit in us. However, the church failed to teach these truths and therefore the people remain sick and poor. The only way out of this dilemma is to walk in the Spirit.
In conclusion, to walk in the Spirit is to be centered in our spirit and not in our flesh. We walk according to the demands of our flesh or according to the leading of the Holy Spirit. When we live in the Spirit we transcend the demands of the flesh. God made a way for us to overcome all the challenges of the flesh. We choose who we will follow.
In addition, when we choose to follow the Holy Spirit, He guides us to the abundant life promised. The devil cannot harass us in His presence. We operate in a different realm, the realm of the Spirit. Every bondage loosened and freedom sets us free. We walk like Jesus on earth as we set our hearts on Him. Today choose to walk by the Holy Spirit and live.
