Listen to the Bible Recap here. (Same as yesterday)
Key verse: THANKS BE TO GOD
24 Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.
God, as we anticipate that gift to come eternal life, we pray that You would help us in our battles with sin today. God, deliver us to the power of Christ over sin. We see him in Your word. We see him resisting sin, never once giving in to sin. And we believe he lives in us. Your spirit is in us right now to help us have victory over sin today. So help us to run from sin today.Radical.net
I just think about people who might listen to this who are struggling with sin and this is that area. I think about my own life, my own temptations towards sin and pride and selfishness. God, please save us today from sin. Deliver us today in the middle of temptation just like You taught us to pray, “Lord Jesus lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” You have the power to do that. You alone have the power to do that. We need you to say, “No to sin. Say yes to righteousness,” and to live in the life You’ve made it possible for us to live.
We pray God, help us to turn from sin and walk in obedience to You today even with this body of death or flesh that’s prone to sin. Lord by the power of Your spirit in us, help us to experience Your life today. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
