The Pilot

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Romans 8:13. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

We think we have the right answers but our answers are from our flesh. God says things of the flesh will die. He has given us the gift of His Holy Spirit when we invited His Son, Jesus Christ into our hearts, minds and lives. When we live according to the directions of the Holy Spirit we find life-giving directions. We’ve all seen bumper stickers saying “God is my co-pilot”. I strongly disagree with that. God is our pilot. Through His Holy Spirit and His interpreting His written word, the Holy Bible, to us for our individual situations, we can walk through this fleshly life knowing He will lead us in His path for us. When we take the steering from Him He will pilot us back into His path. Let’s learn how to consistently let God do the piloting.
