The Hidden Place

But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. (Galatians 1:11-12)

Paul did not preach the messages he heard someone else preaching. He taught the “revelation of Jesus Christ” that he received from the Holy Spirit during the time he was hidden away in Arabia.


Another Comforter

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

Christians are not led by external circumstances or situations. We are led by the Spirit of God. People will make mistakes and may or may not give us good advice but the Holy Spirit will always lead us in the right direction. Over the years I’ve looked to ministers, friends, family, and other people for advice. Sometimes the advice received was good and sometimes it was bad. I have learned the need to check in with the Holy Spirit in every situation regardless of what advice I’m given by people.
