Lead By An Inward Witness

Everyone has the privilege of free-will. The ability to choose is a choice between life and death. I have always believed that our circumstances isn't our problem as much as the way we respond to them is. Scriptures make it clear that love is the core in all we do. God demand we love Him, others and our enemies. Embracing God's love for us is the key to living a life lead by love and the Holy Spirit.

God is love. It's what He do. He loved us so much that He sent His only Son to die for our sins so that we could be saved and have eternal life. There is no greater example of genuine love.

But for us it's more of a challenge to love unconditionally because of our sinful nature. We think of ourselves before we think of others. That's why we need help and guidance. That's why we need an inward witness.

The Holy Spirit is our witness. It helps us to look within ourselves and analyze what we do and why we do it. When we honestly check our motives we begin to see that we sometimes do things for others for selfish reasons. What looks like love isn't always love.

God said you will know His people by the love they show for others.

Many people give possessions and money to people in need. Giving always bring joy to God. But God wants us to go a little farther by giving to everyone lives who touches ours. He wants us to give our time, our prayers and our love to those who are around us, even people we don't know or like. It is this type of love that sets Christians apart from the world.

Once the Holy Spirit has removed those things inside us that isn't of God, like resentments, anger and fear, He begin to guide us by His love like a flowing river. His love will fill us up until His love overflows to others. Others are touched and moved by this overflow of love. We become a vessel of love.

Love is what makes non-believers receptive to God's Word. People are influenced by our actions more than our words. We must not forget that God is not in some far distant land. He resides in us.

God wants us to keep moving toward love that's why He given us His Word and Holy Spirit for instructions and direction. He has called us to a new life in Him. A life that's lead by an inward witness; the Holy Spirit. If we learn to follow the Holy Spirit in all areas of our lives we will be at peace in all that we do.

Thanks! Friendship is something that shouldn't be taken lightly. A good friend is someone you can trust with what you tell them and you know it will stay with them. And they will always encourage you to do the right thing.
