Happy Monday! This week’s scripture verses are a little longer, because the content is difficult to break-up without losing the meaning. However, enjoy the word of God as we continue with Galatians 3.
“Dear brothers and sisters, here’s an example from everyday life. Just as no one can set aside or amend an irrevocable agreement, so it is in this case. God gave the promises to Abraham and his child. And notice that the Scripture doesn’t say “to his children,” as if it meant many descendants. Rather, it says “to his child”—and that, of course, means Christ. This is what I am trying to say: The agreement God made with Abraham could not be canceled 430 years later when God gave the law to Moses. God would be breaking his promise. For if the inheritance could be received by keeping the law, then it would not be the result of accepting God’s promise. But God graciously gave it to Abraham as a promise.” Galatians 3:15-18 NLT
Dear Lord God, your words are true, they continue to guide and challenge us. You made promises with us in mind, long before we were born. You made a way for us through Jesus Christ alone, to be reconciled to You. Lord, you are so faithful and gracious. None compares to you Lord. There is no one greater. Lord, continue to show us your love for us. Lord, continue to remind us that our salvation comes from you alone. Be with us today, help us to be salt and light in the world. Remind us to pray for others. Remind us to remain humble and pray for those who are not living their lives for Christ, those who are lost and those who are struggling with their faith. Strengthen our faith and passion so that others will see you in us. In Jesus name, amen.
Keep seeking God’s truth! Keep trusting God’s word! Keep praying!
