Today's Verse: Romans 6:15 (KJV)

Thursday, September 15, 2005

What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
— Romans 6:15 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

This matching verse to Romans 6:1-2, is the great reminder that sin is no longer our master and no longer our choice. We choose to live for God with every fiber of our being and loathe the life of sin that once held us in bondage to death and defeat.

My Prayer...

Dear God, my Father... precious Jesus my Lord... Holy Spirit my inner companion and holy fire... stir in me a holy passion to be the person of holy and righteous grace you have created me and redeemed me to be. Amen.
