In Every Part of Our Lives

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.

Galatians 5:25 NLT

https://bible.com/bible/116/gal.5.25.NLT

Even in following Jesus, it is easy to get fooled within everyday life about what is right and true. There is a profound need to be intentional throughout the day about God and His ways. Religious structure can unintentionally become more important than the life giving freedom provided by the Holy Spirit.

The Apostle Paul writes a letter to the followers of Jesus in Galatia. He commends them about how well they began new life in Christ. He raises a question that in effect says, “What happened and why have you traded the leadership of the Holy Spirit and returned to a set of laws that will not save you?”

This question is still relevant for all of us today who are following Christ. We are encouraged to follow the Holy Spirit’s leading in every area of our lives. We are reminded to step away from religious divisiveness brought on by the adherence to laws and regulations from days gone by that have nothing to do with salvation offered through Jesus Christ.

Following the Holy Spirit’s lead will produce love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control in every area of our lives. There isn’t any law against any of these things being grown and cultivated in this world.

Encouragement: Come to Jesus every day and thank Him for the salvation He provides. Ask to follow the Holy Spirit in every aspect of life every day. Step away from trusting rules and regulations that are implying the ability to save and redeem. The Law does not produce freedom. Recognize the challenge of our own desires compared to the desire of God to give us freedom in Christ and lead us by the Holy Spirit in every area of our lives.

Prayer: Dear Jesus, I do not want to marginalize you in my life by placing trust in the rules and regulations of religion and culture that make an empty promise of salvation. I do want to follow You and embrace Your salvation. I do want the Holy Spirit to guide me in every aspect of my life. Father God, guard my heart, shape my mind, and focus my strength to respond to You and Your ways in every area of my life.

 In Jesus name I pray,

Amen

The Glitter Gals

The Lights of Christmas Outdoor Artistic Designer, Laurie Fertello, gave the July 2022 SOWER ladies the name “The Glitter Gals.” SOWERS (Servants On Wheels Ever Ready) come as couples in their RVs to work for three weeks at a time before moving on to serve at another Christian organization. This year we had SOWERS in June, July, August, and September. During the summer, SOWER ladies usually work in, or outside, the paint shop with Laurie. The July ladies were tasked ...
