Key Thought

Do you know the commandments? Do you know the core teachings of God's morality? If not, why not review them today. They can be found in Exodus 20. While we are not under law, but under grace, we are reminded that grace and the power of the Holy Spirit helps us to be what we could never be under law—people who live morally pleasing lives to God.

Today's Prayer

O holy and righteous Father, conform me to your character and write your moral will on my heart so that I can display it in my daily life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
