Christ’s death and resurrection give us freedom. Freedom from earning favor with God. Freedom from trying to earn our salvation.
Yet our freedom isn’t well used when choose sin instead of God’s better way.
Self-control is the ability to say no to sin and yes to God.
We know we can’t do this in our own strength, which is why self-control is a Fruit of the Spirit.
We need to consistently walk with the Spirit so that we are able to lay aside the temptations to sin and choose God instead.
As you meditate on our passage this week, allow the Spirit to guide you into what he has for you.
The full meditation passage is as follows:
Galatians 5:13-16, NIV
13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” k 15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.

A Morning Prayer to Count Your Blessings - Your Daily Prayer - February 25
I invite you to join me in taking a pause in your morning, even if it is after all the kiddos are in school (or you have to hide in your closet), so you can truly honor God for all His goodness and faithfulness. Because the truth of the matter is that when we give thanks to God in the morning, it sets the tone for our day and gives way for us to praise Him throughout it.
