DAILY BIBLE READING
Living According To The Spirit
For an individual or a congregation to be continually buoyant in spiritual matters and experience the power of God continuously, the person or congregation needs to live according to the Holy Spirit. A Church desirous of the presence of God at all times will mobilise her members to stop allowing the flesh to control them. As revival sets in and the members gain victory over the flesh, they should desire to continue to travel on the victory lane. They should allow the Holy Spirit to remain in the driver seat of their lives and should not enthrone the flesh again. According to Galatians 5: 16 “Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh”. You can live in constant fellowship with God if you allow the Holy Spirit to control your life.
Point of Emphasis: To be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Prayer Point: Holy Spirit, I yield the control of my life to You, help me to enjoy Your presence always.
