Seeing God’s Work in Our Lives | 04

AUTHOR: Holy Scripture

READ:

Read or listen to Galatians 3:27–4:7.

For those of you who were baptized into Christ have been clothed with Christ. There is no Jew or Greek, slave or free, male and female; since you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, heirs according to the promise.

Now I say that as long as the heir is a child, he differs in no way from a slave, though he is the owner of everything. Instead, he is under guardians and trustees until the time set by his father. In the same way we also, when we were children, were in slavery under the elements of the world. When the time came to completion, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba, Father!” So you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then God has made you an heir.

What have you received as a result of God sending his Son as a redeemer? What does the Holy Spirit inside of us cry out?

The written Scripture is CSB, however, the audio Scripture is ESV.

FOCUS:

When have you felt dead and unloved this week? When have you felt alive and loved this week? Pay attention to your body as you answer these questions.

PRAY:

Ask the Holy Spirit to meet you in the places of brokenness and joy that you identified.

    Suffering like all life events is to be fully lived. If we deny or reject our suffering and its emotions then we are less and the opportunity to draw closer to God and man is lost. To say the words is easy… to live it not so much.
