These two forces are in a constant battle vying for your attention.
What are they? I rather ask, who are they?
One is Yahweh, our Triune God [Father, Son, & Holy Spirit]. The other is satan [devil, adversary].
As scripture tells us, the Holy Spirit guides us to do what is good, right, and loving. The devil guides us to do what is wrong, evil, and unloving.
Since the fall of man [Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden] we are all born into a sinful nature. We have a bent toward sin.
When the Son, Yeshua/Jesus, came from Heaven to earth as fully human it was His lot in life to become sin for us, die at Calvary, [to be crucified], and then to be resurrected [raised back to life]. Jesus promised that Yahweh would leave us with the Holy Spirit.
But the Helper will teach you everything and will cause you to remember all that I told you. This Helper is the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name. John 14:26
When we accept Yeshua as our Savior we invite the Holy Spirit into our heart. The Holy Spirit is our guide to do what is right. Sometimes we make the choice to ignore right and do wrong.
In today’s scripture, Paul pleas with us to allow the Holy Spirit to guide us so that we’ll do what’s right, loving, and good.
Which do you choose? Choose whom you’ll serve. You can only serve one. I personally choose to allow the Holy Spirit to guide me. I hope you will too.
