“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons (and daughters) of God.”
Certainly, this verse (and a litany of others) teach us that the Christian faith is ORGANIC and DYNAMIC.
A comforting layer of meaning in this particular passage arises when we consider that there are seasons and circumstances the Lord leads us into by His Spirit, and when we submit and display contentment, it shows we are children of God.
Yes it means moment-by-moment obedience, but when we are not always faithful in these episodes, we may take comfort with our overall track record of our accepting and thriving in the seasons and narratives we find ourselves in.
I also find it assuring that, at times, we are “led along” while at other times, “carried along” (2 Peter 1:21).
