506 Follow the Path Led by the Holy Spirit in Your Faith
1 You have only walked a very small portion of the path of a believer in God, and you’ve yet to enter onto the right track, so you’re still far from achieving God’s standard. Right now, your stature is not adequate to meet His demands. Due to your caliber as well as your innate corrupt nature, you always treat God’s work carelessly and don’t take it seriously. This is your greatest shortcoming.
2 Furthermore, you are incapable of finding the path of the Holy Spirit. Most of you don’t understand it and can’t see it clearly. Moreover, most of you pay no mind to this matter, and are even less serious about it. If you continue to behave like this and do not know the work of the Holy Spirit, then the path you take as a believer in God will be futile. This is because you don’t do everything in your power to seek to fulfill God’s will, and because you don’t cooperate well with God. It’s not that God hasn’t worked on you, or that the Holy Spirit hasn’t moved you. It’s that you are so careless that you don’t take the work of the Holy Spirit seriously. You must turn things around immediately and walk the path led by the Holy Spirit.
3 This “path led by the Holy Spirit” is that people gain enlightenment in their spirit, they have knowledge of God’s word, they gain clarity on the path ahead of them, and they are able to enter into the truth step by step, and come to understand God more and more. The path led by the Holy Spirit is primarily that people have a clearer understanding of God’s word, free of deviations and misconceptions, so that they may walk in it. In order to achieve this effect, you will need to work in harmony with God, find a correct path to put into practice, and walk the path led by the Holy Spirit. Only then can you achieve God’s requirements of you and enter onto the right track of belief in God.
