Suppose you were going on an imaginary journey to a land where you had
never been. You would find yourself confronted there by an unknown land, an
unfamiliar language, strange customs and untraveled roads. You could not make
such a journey successfully unless you had a guide who would lead you who had
been there before, who understood the way that you were to take and would
direct you each step as you went along the way. Life is a great deal like

Christ, in the person of the Holy Spirit, comes to abide in your heart. The
Holy Spirit, we are told in the Bible, becomes the guide, the director for the
children of God. For instance, in Romans 8:14 the Bible says, for as many as
