My wife might like it if I stopped acting like a two year old.
My kids might like it if I were a good role model.
My church family might like it if I made our faith look attractive to outsiders.
God might like it if He didn't have to keep disciplining me for things He clearly commanded me to do and not do, and if He didn't have to keep forgiving me for my intentional diversions from His will, breaking our fellowship.
But, what if I were to just surrender all, and submit to the moment to moment leading of the Holy Spirit, and what if I did everything He led me to do, moment to moment? If I obeyed in all, why should I want or need to change in my character? In fact, how would my wife, kids and church family know the difference, that I had not changed in my character? God would know, but why should He care, so long as i was obeying Him, moment by moment by moment?
Because simply obeying the Spirit in the moment can make me sinless, shouldn't I just obey the Spirit moment to moment? Shouldn' t I just figure out how to never stop being in the Spirit?
Isn't all this wanting me to change in my character off the path anyway? I mean, if I became like Jesus in His character, what need of God would I have then? wouldn't it just pump me up in pride, being able to obey in everything out of my own character?
Please, help me to figure out what I should do. I'm thinking about abandoning trying to become like Jesus. ....
