<261> Thesis: Being led by God's Spirit is the only way we can get to know God as He is. Introduction: In our considerations of Paul's method of Life, we have seen that there are, fundamentally, two "steps" involved in "walking": one is an active dependence upon Truth in the form of "promise"; the other is an active yielding to Truth when it becomes "true" to us in light of the plans of the flesh to achieve its goals by its means. In our last study, we saw that the internal conflict between the flesh and the Spirit makes it imperative that we address this conflict at its root: "desire" (as "agenda"). We cannot achieve our agenda. Period. The only "agenda" that we can achieve is "death" by refusal to forsake our own self-determination. In this study we are going to look into a matter that "seemed" to have been settled by this time: our relationship to "Law".
