Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We show who is in control in our lives by the way we live! We show our relationship to the Father by living with his character in our world. So let's live under the control of the Spirit — obeying the Spirit's inspired Word and following the Spirit's lead — so we can show and share Jesus in what we say and do!

My Prayer...

Dear Father, please help the beauty, grace, and holiness of Jesus to be seen in me. May my life show the control, grace, and fruit of the Holy Spirit in all I do today and every day. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
