Hi, Linda. You say you are led by the Holy Spirit, which is a good thing, but please be minded of the critical role that very same Spirit has to play in helping us to keep the commandments, statutes and judgements of the Law. See the passages below:
19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: 20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
The Spirit prophesied in the passages above is the same one promised by the Messiah in John 14:15-21, and the same one given in Acts 2, Acts 10, etc. What is clear from these passages is that the Spirit functions in part to “cause [us] to walk in [His] statutes, and […] keep [His] judgments, and do them“.
Hope this helps.
PS. I will be posting another study soon (probably over the pagan weekend) that should help to further establish the importance of obedience for Israelite believers today.
