Scripture: Galatians 6

{I map out the scriptures I’m going to use for these posts a month in advance. It is not coincidence that they are so applicable to today. Thanking the Lord for His Word that is always timely. He knows what we need before we do.}

This is a passage of scripture that needs no further commentary from me. Take it to heart as, according to 2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.

8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

 

10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.

DO NOT GIVE UP.

DO NOT GIVE UP.

DO NOT GIVE UP.

Scripture: Galatians 5

Jesus Christ is all about faith and love.

It seems so simple yet our vision is often clouded, and our path often cluttered, so that before we know it we’re down either a path of working for our salvation or living for our flesh.

You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion is not from him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump.

Galatians 5:7‭-‬9

Don’t you wish there was always someone else to blame when you lose focus? However, most often the only person to blame is ourselves. We open the door to peek out at temptations, or we let the lies of Satan saying our faith isn’t enough seep in through the cracks.

Jesus Christ is all about freedom from this torment!

This freedom is ours to glorify God with our lives, with our work, with our love for one another. It’s not to be twisted into a license for our flesh to take the wheel.

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

Galatians 5:13

“Love your neighbor as yourself.” That takes care of all the work we need to do. And we don’t even have to do that in our strength. We have the Spirit.

Faith in Jesus and walking in the Spirit is the key to our freedom:

Find freedom.


Journal: Write a prayer that you will walk in the Spirit. If you don’t really understand what that means, ask the Lord for wisdom and resources.


Move: Long run day. It doesn’t matter what your long run looks like. It could be 2 miles, it could be 22. Just spend some time with your feet on the ground.

{Beginner’s run #9: Walk 5 minutes to warm-up, then run 5 minutes/walk 1 minute x4, then walk 5 minutes to cool-down.}


Praise the Lord, and just show up.
