“Do not be transformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2
There is a certain principle here, within this verse. The first part of it enables us to live a godly life; the following part gives us opportunity to experience it and the last part takes us to a place of enjoyment. When we finally find God’s will for us, we don’t DO, we enjoy in it. Then the Holy Spirit is able to lead us and guide us. That is why Paul was able to write the following as his lifestyle: “But by the grace of God I am what I am and His grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it wasn’t I but the grace of God that is with me.” (1 Corinthians 15:10) Look closer at this part of the verse:”His grace in my life was not in vain”. Are we aware that we’ve been given grace in our lives?! Here is the deal: whether we are receptive toward the Holy Spirit, this grace will manifest accordingly. Yes, we are saved and we have grace, but we must learn to be led by the Holy Spirit, for only He can take us to a place of grace upon grace in everything we do.This is how grace will be displayed.Although the living testimony from 1 Cor. 15:10 is intended to be part of everyone’s life, unfortunately many aren’t experiencing it. What Paul is saying here is that he allowed to be led by the Holy Spirit Who took him to a place of this testimony. What did Paul do?! He enjoyed God’s will once he found it in the leadership of the Spirit. Not him, but the Holy Spirit, not him but God’s grace, not his strength but God’s righteousness. That’s why he was able to enjoy and experience great things from heaven.
