Are you harnessed in the freedom of His Spirit?
It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth. (Lamentations 3:27 KJV)
Too many young folks today are running loose, wild, and carefree; not yoked or harnessed in the spirit of truth, mercy and grace of God. Often kids learn moral limits and rules without having any spiritual knowledge of God. They may learn a right and wrong, or a set of rules to follow; but not why right is right and wrong is wrong according to God’s authority. Having no personal relationship with God and obtaining good character apart from God will only bring them a sense of morality with no spiritual essence or eternal values. It is not enough that man learns discipline if he does not personally know God who created the absolutes of life. The fundamental truths of God are the cornerstone of obedience.
God transforms a person from the inside out. A person who yokes up with God has an eternal spiritual change in their heart and an indwelling of the Holy Spirit residing within them; it is much more than following a set of rules or a family tradition. It is a burst of new spiritual life in their heart.
