What plans have you got on the go at present? What is it that motivates or determines what you do? Are the things you plan the expression of Jesus in you? Do you set out on a path because you have the mind of Christ? We don't live in a generic God. Being immersed in the culture of Christianity will not do. All have the potential to acknowledge that Jesus lives in us. Is He being you? Are you hearing His voice? This is not something esoteric. It's the normal of our new covenant union with God.
Fruitful plans are the result of the Spirit of God blended with your spirit and soul. Blended because in Jesus, you and Father have become one.
The Lord gives us His spirit and life not because we are amazingly holy but because we have made Him our life. We may be not very holy at all. Yet because we rely in Him in spite of ourselves we are graced with His authority and life-changing power. The words about Jesus, 'He had authority and not as the scribes' means He had authority much greater than the religious.
The Lord gives people life-giving words to speak with His authority. Speaking spirit and life is different to just speaking. It's also different to just living. You can sense His spirit and life flowing through you if Christ is your life. In this age He lives in us. Heaven lives in us. Recently a pastor with whom I have spent time, related how the Lord had indicated to him in a dream that it was time to enter a new village. The people would be ready to receive the message of Jesus. My friend did so and found open doors as the Lord said there would be. This is not the province of the pious. Or the legalist. It's the normal of the son who is one with our Father and filled with His Spirit.
