Steps to Take as You Follow ChristAsk— What do I do with God’s spirit?Seek—From a prayer posture, concentrate on your breathing. Asyou inhale, ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit, to animateyour every action to do his will. As you exhale, breathe the namefrom the core of your being: Jesus. Continue to meditate on him.Knock—Meditate on Galatians 6:7–9. Reflect on the differencebetween a living person and a corpse. Are most of your actions,actions of sowing in the flesh or sowing to the spirit? Ask Godfor patience that you might endure in all things by sowing to thespirit.Transform Your Life—Make it a habit to pray the prayer ofJesus from the cross whenever you find yourself tempted to dosomething that you know is not of God: “Father, into your handsI commend my Spirit.” This prayer that Jesus has given us is thekey to moving from sowing in the flesh to sowing to the spirit.
