What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God — through Jesus Christ our Lord!
— Romans 7:24-25

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Our bodies are mortal and flawed. They are tainted with our weakness and sin. But, by the grace of God given us in Jesus Christ, our future does not rest in the dust with our bodies, but in the power of our perfecting Lord.

My Prayer...

Almighty God, thank you for giving me life beyond the death of my mortal flesh. Thank you for giving me holiness beyond my sin-stained flesh. Thank you for delivering me from death and bringing me into your glory. Now, dear Father, may my words, deeds, and thoughts reflect your grace and power in all I do today and each day that follows. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
