Romans 12:4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
I am currently reading “The Daniel Fast”. The focus of the book is using the Daniel Fast as a spiritual cleansing as well as a weight control plan. On page 19 the author, Susan Gregory, states: “By setting our minds on the things of the Spirit, we allow the Spirit of God living in us to have more power in our lives. Our ultimate goals is to be Spirit-led rather than led by our flesh.”
I have found this to be true in more than just a person’s eating habits. It is excellent advice for every part of our lives. We can allow the world to control us and toss us back and forth between fads, what is pc today, and what the world favors today, or we can follow the Spirit and stay in the constant and consistent will of God. Just know this: walking the path of the world is easier and less painful. It calls for no will power, no sacrifice, you get to follow the largest crowds and be told how popular you are. Following the Spirit will lead you again most things of this world. It will lead you down paths where you may feel alone. You will not be p.c. or even popular in many of the stands you take. You will oppose most of what the world calls good and enjoyable. Often you will discover following the Spirit makes life more difficult.
But when you are led by the Spirit you are not being led down a lonely road. It may be the “road less traveled” but it is a straight road that leads to Jesus Christ. Take heart in knowing there are many others on the same journey and they can’t wait to meet you and walk with you.
