Being LED by the Holy Spirit
The difference between a child of God and other people is not just in what he believes. The difference is that a child of God is LED by the Spirit of God, by the Holy Spirit. If we do not have the Holy Spirit, then we do not belong to Jesus Christ.
He gives the Holy Spirit IN those who believe in Him and who obey Him, who REPENT and are baptized in water. If the keep on seeking Him then He gives His Spirit IN them and they are GUIDED by the Holy Spirit. That is how they follow Jesus. If we do not have the Holy Spirit then we do not belong to Jesus.
The world, the unbelievers, cannot receive the Holy Spirit. It is only those who OBEY Jesus Christ that receive the Holy Spirit. Those who receive the Holy Spirit also have the ability to pray in tongues because they have the Spirit of God indwelling in them and through the Spirit of God dwelling in them they communicate with Him and He guides them. Therefor Paul writes in Romans 8:14 that "those who are being LED by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God" the children of God.
Have you received the Holy Spirit? Are you being LED by the Spirit of God? Are you REALLY a child of God?
May Jesus bless you.
