RIGHTEOUS LIVING

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Proverbs 4:11-19

I have directed you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in upright paths.

Proverbs 4:11, NASB

You must follow the Holy Spirit until He leads you into righteousness. Depend on the voice of God for the right church, the right friends and the right company. You must be led by the Spirit of God so that you live a righteous life.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Psalm 23:3

This Scripture shows how dependent you are on God’s guidance for righteous living. A sign that you are being led by the voice of the Holy Spirit is that you end up living a righteous life.

Many people end up as fruitless nonentities in the kingdom of God because they do not follow the leading of the Spirit into the perfect will of God. Many people join churches just because they live near the church. Others join churches because the pastor is handsome or because they like the pastor’s wife. But it is so important to be led by the Spirit when you are choosing a church.

It makes all the difference in the world! Most definitely, you need the guidance of the Holy Spirit to know where to go to church.

“I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances” (Ezekiel 36:27, NASB).
