Pastor Daniel Stevens

Last week, we explored Water Baptism. Now, we move forward to discuss the Spirit Led Life. Often, it seems like there are only two options: selfish pleasure seeking or dead religion, both leading to negative outcomes. But there is a third, much better option: the Spirit Led Life, offering true fulfillment beyond the emptiness of dead religion and the pain of selfish living.

I've experienced all three paths. While I led a relatively boring life, I understand selfish pleasure and the entanglements of dead religion, which often leads to bureaucracy and conflicts. However, my early walk with God involved prayer, Bible reading, and daily communication with Him. This Spirit-led journey inevitably led me to church, where the challenge is to keep it God-focused rather than organization-focused.

Jesus exemplifies the Spirit Led Life, as shown in Matthew 4:1-11, where He overcame wilderness temptations through His connection with God. Romans 8:1-17 emphasizes the freedom and guidance found in living by the Spirit, particularly in verses 8:2, 8:9, and 8:14.

If you feel stuck between two bad options, it’s time to embrace the Spirit Led Life. This path offers true fulfillment and spiritual growth. Let's seek the Spirit Led Life together, praying to be filled with the Spirit and to walk in His steps, as highlighted in Ephesians 5:15-16.
