Once you come to God, through believing on Jesus Christ, to receive the forgiveness of your sins that Christ has purchased for you with His Precious Blood, you are expected to grow spiritually and be translated from being led by your flesh to being led by God's Spirit. You belong to God, and no longer belong to your self. You must remember that you have been adopted, and made whole, by God through Christ's Righteousness. "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God." Romans 8:14. Be led by His Spirit. The battle that most Believers in Christ face is that of who is controlling them, their flesh or The Holy Spirit. Yielding your life over to God is a continual process that must be accomplished by renewing your mind with the washing of God's Word. Through prayer, and spending time meditating on God's Word, you will grow and mature, being the follower of Christ, the Christian, that God desires you to be. Permit The Holy Spirit to guide and help you in all matters. Seek His help, counsel, and wisdom, so that you may draw closer to Jesus. Do not stay on spiritual milk, being weak. Grow spiritually with a diet of spiritual meat in God's Word. "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment." Hebrews 5:12-6:2. Maturity is expected of every Christian Believer through training. "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." 1 Corinthians 13:11. Think of your Christian life as the training an athlete goes through, who has been selected for The Olympics. "Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway." 1 Corinthians 9:24-27. A mature Christian will always be disciplined, and have self-control, or temperance, which is a fruit of The Spirit, being careful to avoid the works of the flesh. "This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law." See Galatians 5:16-26. Check everything that you do, say, or think to see if it is birthed of the flesh or birthed of the Spirit. Taming the flesh can take time, but it is of most importance. Your mind needs to be brought into subjection to God's Spirit. The carnal, fleshly mind is an enemy of God, because it wars and it fights against The Spirit. "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his." Romans 8:1-9. Ask God's Spirit to lead and help you.
