Today's Verse: Galatians 5:13 (KJV)

Monday, May 22, 2006

For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
— Galatians 5:13 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Freedom is a wonderful gift when it is handled with responsibility. Not being under law is such a sweet grace, but we want to pass that sweetness on to each other through service, kindness, and care.

Video Commentary...

We've included Phil's ToGather video from four years ago as an added blessing to our verse today:

My Prayer...

O Great God of Deliverance, thank you for rescuing Israel from Pharaoh's grasp, David from the sword of Goliath, and Daniel from the lion's den. But O Great Deliverer, thank you most of all for the triumph of Jesus over sin at Calvary and his victory over death at the empty tomb. I long to see you face to face and thank you for my freedom. Until that day, guide me as I use this gift of liberation to serve your children and live for you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
