Key Verse

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” Romans 8:14

Text — Romans 8:14-17


One day, a man asked an old shepherd how he used his staff to guide as well as comfort the sheep. The shepherd explained that in the day time, while going ahead of his flock, he carried his staff across his shoulders so the flock could see and follow him. However, he explained further, when night falls and it is dark and difficult for the sheep to see ahead of them, he tapped the ground with his staff. While tapping, he would walk slowly so that the flock could hear and follow the direction of the sound, knowing their shepherd was ahead of them. This gave the flock the assurance that their loving and caring shepherd was still leading/guiding them.

The word of God and His Spirit are the guides of a child of God today. God speaks to you through His word, the Bible; that is why you must read and meditate on it daily. At other times, His Spirit whispers gently to you in a still small voice. You must pay attention to the Spirit of God in order to hear His voice within you. He speaks to reassure His children of His presence as they diligently follow Him. Like the old shepherd was closely followed by his flock in the night, listen to the Spirit of God and He will always lead you.
