Living life without the guidance of the Holy Spirit is extremely risky, because it leaves us open to the confusion that is widespread in today’s world. Not only does the Spirit bring us understanding when we let Him lead us, He also points out any pockets of unbelief we may have that hinder us in our Christian walk. Unbelief is the underlying root of every sin we commit; He shows us where we have issues, and He helps us to believe. Religion makes sin the central issue; however, Jesus dealt with sin on the cross. God has already forgiven us of all our sins—even the ones we have not yet committed. The real issue is a lack of belief in this. Choosing to have faith in the Holy Ghost, and letting Him get out in front of us, radically transforms us.
