Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Where the Holy Spirit's influence thrives, our human character is transformed, and we display spiritual fruit. This maturity isn't developed overnight. It is, however, noticeable over the long haul of life when a person pursues Jesus and reflects the Lord's righteous character, gracious compassion, and faithful lovingkindness. So, what fruit does the Spirit bring alive in your life? In what ways have you matured to become more like Christ? In what areas do you want the Spirit to exercise greater control? Why not take a moment and consciously yield those areas in which you struggle to the Lord as we pray?

My Prayer...

Almighty and ever-present Father, we thank you for empowering positive changes in our lives as we seek to be more like Jesus. Please bring the fruit of the Holy Spirit to full maturity in our lives. You know where we continue to struggle with sin. We intentionally turn over those parts of our lives to your Spirit to redeem and fully sanctify us so the Spirit will continue to transform us to be more like our Savior. In his name, we pray. Amen.
