Jesus paid the price for sin and ended sin’s control over us and over our destiny. No words can adequately thank Jesus for the price he paid and the gift he gave. His purpose was to free us to live by the Spirit — the Holy Spirit he pours out on us when we come to him and are reborn into a new life (Titus 3:3-7). The real question you and I face each day is whether we will consciously, intentionally, and prayerfully seek to follow the Spirit.
Righteous Father, I confess that I often don’t consciously engage my heart and mind around the leadership of the Spirit in my life. Please remind me each day of this need that I have. Please make your Spirit’s presence tangibly real as I commit to depending upon his leadership more and more in my daily life. In Jesus’ name, I ask for this grace. Amen.
