Throughout his epistles, Paul constantly returns to the theme of being saved by God’s grace through Christ Jesus, apart from any human efforts to earn a right standing with God. Building on that foundation, he speaks of the quality of life that flows from becoming new creations in Jesus. His messages culminate with exhortations to turn from worldly practices and to focus on practices and habits that support and reflect the new life we have in Jesus. This Spirit-led journey of transformation infuses our lives and leadership with the life and character of Jesus in contrast to the motivations, goals, and practices of worldly leaders. Are you walking by the Spirit today?
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. —Galatians 5:16
Prayer: Father, we come to You in the name of Jesus, asking You to pour out Your Spirit so that increasingly, day by day, our leadership exalts You only and makes us a blessing to others. Amen.
