7 Evidences of a Spirit-Led Life

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

What comes to mind when someone says they are Spirit-led? Your answer will likely depend on your experience and what you’ve been taught. For some, it will conjure up images of some highly emotional experience. Others might imagine a quiet prayer warrior or someone with a servant’s heart. If it’s true that “as many as are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God,” then it should be an important question for all of us to consider.

Scripture teaches that every true believer has the Spirit of God (Rom. 8:9), but it is possible to walk after the flesh instead of walking after the Spirit (Gal. 5). So, how can we know if we are being led by the Spirit?

Here are 7 evidences of someone who is led by the Spirit:1

There is a Change in One’s Outlook

A believer has been born-again, which is a fundamental change of disposition and outlook. Walking in the flesh will mask this change, but walking in the Spirit will highlight it and make it more evident. There will be more of a desire for spiritual things such as loving fellow believers, growing in the knowledge of the word, serving the church, etc. Someone not walking in the Spirit (or devoid of the Spirit) finds such things boring or worthless, thus they are not interested. As we walk in the Spirit, we become more aware that this life is a temporary pilgrimage and our true citizenship is in heaven.

Do you see yourself becoming more detached from this world?

A Desire to Live for God’s Glory

The ultimate purpose of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever. Jesus came to glorify the Father (John 17), and we are told to glorify him by our good works (Matt. 5:16), when we eat and drink (1 Cor. 10:31), and in everything we do (Col. 3:17). God will not share his glory with another (Isaiah 42:8), thus the more we are led by the Spirit the more we’ll be led to fulfill our ultimate purpose.

Do you see a greater desire to glorify God?
