Who's in control?

“It’s obvious when someone is not walking in the Spirit (at least not consistently). What you see and experience from such a person is usually along the lines of rage, selfishness, dissension, bitterness, and envy.  However, when a person is habitually and actively submitting to the Spirit, what comes out of his or her life is the fruit of the Spirit.  The Holy Spirit will not - cannot - lead you into sin.  If the Holy Spirit is in you, as a believer, then when you sin you are not listening to the Spirit’s leading.” Francis Chan Forgotten God

There is a laundry list above that probably plagues most of us; although if taken captive by Christ and put to death in Him, we being to live in the Spirit. Colossians 3:3-5, "For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put to death therefore what is earthly in you..."

Are you waking up every morning and inviting the Holy Spirit to guide you? "Put to death," this laundry list of things and live in Him.  As you begin to live in the Spirit people begin to see Christ in you.  That's what I want! May it be so.

Blessings to each of you.
