Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer these lines from Christopher J.H. Wright.
“Obedience flows from grace; it does not buy it. Obedience is the fruit and proof and sustenance of a relationship with the God you already know.”
Numbers 32:23 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
23 But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against the Lord, and be sure your sin will find you out.
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Thank You for the wonderfully perfect gift of grace. Help us to overcome our sin nature and walk with The Spirit in obedience as to not carry out those sinful desires. Direct our steps and thoughts to come in line with Your ways. Place others in Your family around us always to be a constant reminder and encouragement when sin and temptation crouch at our doors. Refresh us so we may refresh others on the journey to Your heart. In Jesus’ name, amen.
