The Will of God For Your Life

December 9, 2016

Sermon of the Day: Why Do We Need to Be Born Again?

1 Thessalonians 4:3a

For this is the will of God, your sanctification…

I wanted to share something from one of the books I am reading titled ‘Who Is the Holy Spirit?’ by R.C Sproul.

The name of the chapter is called ‘The Sanctifier’, and of course he goes on to explain and describe how the Holy Spirit is responsible for leading the Christian in holiness.

Although the context of the above verse is in regards to sexual immorality. Biblically we know that there is more to sanctification and holiness than just being sexual pure.

R.C. Sproul gave some examples of Christians that have come to him and said they are doing this or that and they are doing it because they feel led by the Holy Spirit.

Not sure if any of you have thought that or even said that. We must test everything we say and do against God’s Word. If we are being led to do something that is contrary to God’s Word. It is biblically impossible that you are being led by the Holy Spirit. God will not contradict Himself like that.

R.C. brought up a good point that we must not even stop searching with popular Christian teaching. We must test everything against the Word men.

The Holy Spirit is there to guide us and lead us in all truth. R.C says on pg. 53; “It is His (Holy Spirit) power working in us that helps us grow in holiness…His specific task to enable followers of Christ in their quest for sanctification.” 

Men, my hope and prayer is that you are encouraged to continue in your walk of faith no matter where you are. Keep seeking the Lord, keep learning about Him in His Word. For those of you feeling that tug to turn from certain things, sins or idols in your life. Just obey men. Do it now and never look back. Allow God’s power to draw you closer to Him so that you will live a life of significance and blessing to every one around you.

    video is now a serious easy way to monetize on your own talents.
