“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Galatians 5:13-14,16-17,22-23,25

TODAY’S WORD…

.

You were called to freedom, brothers and sisters;

only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence,

but through love become slaves to one another.

For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment,

‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’

.

– Galatians 5:13-14 (NRSV)

.

.

Live by the Spirit, I say,

and do not gratify the desires of the flesh.

For what the flesh desires is opposed to the Spirit,

and what the Spirit desires is opposed to the flesh;

for these are opposed to each other,

to prevent you from doing what you want.

.

– Galatians 5:16-17 (NRSV)

.

.

The fruit of the Spirit

is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity,

faithfulness,gentleness, and self-control.

If we live by the Spirit,

let us also be guided by the Spirit.

.

– Galatians 5:22-23,25 (NRSV)

PRAYER…

.

My Lord, my God, my Creator,

thank You for the freedom You give me,

thank You for letting me choose.

And I have decided, Lord

– I have chosen You

and I want to live by Your Spirit.

Come, Holy Spirit,

strengthen me against my self-indulgent nature,

fortify my resolve to overcome my weaknesses,

and make me a source of Christian love and service to others.

.

Come, Holy Spirit,

and fill me with Your fruit,

which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity,

faithfulness,gentleness, and self-control.

.

Come, Holy Spirit,

I want to be guided by You.
