Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this line from R.K. McGregor Wright.
“… biblical freedom at any level is tied to faith and obedience as the fruit is to the root.”
Hebrews 12:11 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
11 No discipline seems enjoyable at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Bless Your discipline and correction. Your servant knows well the challenges discipline entails, but is so thankful for the results. Continue to refine and perfect us accordingly for good works. Protect us from evil and temptation as we head out into this fallen world. Refresh us and enable us to be a helping hand or comforting ear to our brothers and sisters in their times of need. May our fruit be sweet and acceptable to You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
