Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
The Holy Spirit In Our Lives
Jesus said.. John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
The Holy Spirit has not only come to comfort us but also to convict us. Gripped by His mercy love and grace. A Jesus disciple is under God’s microscope and nothing escapes His eyes.
The purpose of the indwelling Holy Spirit is to produce firstfruits unto the Lord. And so a Kingdom seeking disciple will be summoned to the Holy Spirit’s court of conviction. He/she cannot escape His scrutiny.
Our Way Or God’s Way
Matthew 5:25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
Matthew 5:26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
When the conscience has become sensitive to the the Redeemers voice within the heart quickly and joyfully responds in worship and obedience. This is walking in the power of the Spirit with Jesus as Lord.
