Spontaneous Living

“Our life is the life of Christ, mediated in us by the indwelling Holy Spirit himself, and the law of that life is spontaneous. The moment we see that fact we shall end our struggling and cast away our pretense. Nothing is so hurtful to the life of a Christian as acting; nothing so blessed as when our outward efforts cease and our attitudes become natural–when our words, our prayers, our very life, all become a spontaneous and unforced expression of the life within. Have we discovered how good the Lord is? Then in us he is as good as that! Is his power great? Then in us it is no less great! Praise God, his life is as mighty as ever, and in the lives of those who dare to believe the Word of God the divine life will be manifest in a power not one whit less mighty than was manifest of old.”  – Watchman Nee, ‘Sit Walk Stand’

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Rom 8:14
