I would like us to consider, today, Galatians 5:25 (ESV), “If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.”
Tucked into this brief verse is a powerful truth that we, as Christians, must possess to be effective Christians. If I may, I would like to paraphrase the passage of Scripture this way: “If we are going to be in God’s orchestra, then we need to keep in time with the Conductor.”
For us to contribute to God’s work on earth we need to be synchronized with the will and movement of the Holy Spirit of God. We can’t do that unless we’re in our designated place, doing our assigned work. Then, just like an orchestra, together, we can present to God beautiful, powerful, and glorious music of praise.
