“Since we are living by the Spirit,”(Gal. 5:25a) THEREFORE, “let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.”
Walking after the Spirit implies that all our actions are to be subject to the Holy Spirit’s own laws and principles. With these everything become sharply defined. There is a precise standard of right and wrong. What is right is right, whether the day is clear or cloudy. What is wrong is wrong, whether the matter is exciting or repulsive. The Christian’s walk must follow a distinct standard. The one who lives in his emotions will not be governed by principles but by the whim of vacillating feelings. Should he be thrilled he may be tempted to undertake what he would ordinarily recognise as unreasonable. If, however, he feels despondent he may not even perform what he well knows to be his duty. The law of the Spirit of life is God’s remedy for this. For it is we who are the circumcision, we who worship by the Spirit of God, who glory in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh… (Phil. 3:3)
