For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
The ground floor of the church building is the life of the Spirit, that is, being led by Him.
There is no other life, no other functional place of ministry than to be spiritually minded, and any ministry that occurs outside of that will only reproduce after its own kind. Any other form of church is a hollow, man-made shell, with no lasting fruit nor legacy.
Jesus came and demonstrated the first spirit-led life. He was cut off from this Earth through the waters of baptism, lived apart and separated in the Spirit realm of the Holy Ghost, and only after His death was he granted brothers.

The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment:
1 Corinthians 2:15 NIV
You see, it is the spiritual man that is free.
According to Paul, he, the spiritual man, judges all things, and yet is judged by no one.
But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
1 Corinthians 2:15 KJV
He that is spiritual judges. He that is spiritual is not subject to other men’s judgement.
The man led by the Spirit is not under the law. He neither looks directly to it for his direction nor does he receive criticism or accusation that he has violated it or has transgressed it.

That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore.
The crowds came to Jesus. Thousands had heard of the miracles following this man. This man, who was God, had the wisdom of the Eternity within His heart, and He chose to take a moment to go out to the lake. Perhaps He went out to pray in a quiet place, or possibly to rest for a moment, but, whatever the reason, the crowds surrounded Him until He was pressed on every side. While the masses swelled, He entered a boat and taught them, while the people came.
Everyone wants the miraculous, the signs, wonders, and miracles, but who wants the reason behind them? We want the power, but who wants the man? We want the demonstration, but who wants the price he paid?

Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
The Scriptures are sufficient for the Christian life. They show the way of Salvation, Jesus Christ, and they instruct in righteousness, fully equipping the man of God for every work of service. The Scriptures are not the sum total of everything knowable about God of course, for Jesus Himself said that He had much more that He wanted to share that He couldn’t, because it would be too much for His disciples (John 16:12). The Holy Spirit is here to guide us into all truth. But, when that comes, the object is not necessarily to write a new book about it.
