Paul, an apostle, wrote to the church in Rome, “For as many as are lead by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.” (Romans 8:14)
Derek Prince (1915-2003) wrote, “In order to become a true Christian, a person must be born again of the Spirit of God. In order to become an effective witness for Christ, a person must be baptized in the Holy Spirit. But the work of the Holy Spirit should never end there. In order to live daily as a Christian, a person must be led by the Spirit. The new birth transforms sinners into children of God. But it requires the continual leading of the Holy Spirit to make children into mature sons.”
The process is one of complete dependence. We are born again by the Spirit, or born from above, then we are immersed into/by the Spirit, and then we are daily lead by the Spirit.
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” Jesus
