Daily Meditation - January 22

Scripture

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.

And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions.

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!

Ga 5

Prayer

God, I acknowledge this conflict that rages within me. Help me to overcome my base human nature in order to yield fully to you. Transform me from within to be the person that you want me to be. Let your fruit be the most obvious feature that others see. Fill me with your presence and change me from the inside.
