Our pastor this morning read scriptures out of Galatians 5. Verse 16 says “walk in the spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” Verse 18 says” but if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” He defined the word translated here as walk as a circular path rather than random and haphazard. As we walk in the spirit and are led by the Spirit, we stay in close relationship with him and allow him to guide our actions.
He then likened our Christian walk to the game of baseball. He said the main point in baseball is to stand at home, hit the ball, run the bases, and make it home again. So the concept is to go from home to home.
In Hebrews 12:2 the author says “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith….” His conclusion was that since Jesus is the author and the finisher of our faith, we go from a relationship with him, guided by the Holy Spirit, and return to him for eternal life!
What an amazing truth!
