Interruptions or Opportunities?

I try really hard to be a go-with-the-flow kind of a person. I’d like to be someone that rolls with the punches. I think life would be a lot easier for me if I could get the hang of that.

Standing in Grace and the Power of the Spirit

Romans 5-8

“…we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.” Romans 5:1, 2
“…if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live…” Romans 8:13

We stand on the finished work of Jesus on the cross to forgive our sins and on his grace toward us. However, it is not a passive standing, but an active Spirit-led and Spirit-empowered standing against the misdeeds of the body and temptations of our sinful nature. Neither extreme grace as a justification for spiritual passivity nor a works-oriented battling for spiritual freedom is helpful. We stand in grace and in the power of the Spirit. Jesus has delivered us from the power of sin and death, but we must apply this victory to the temptations and distractions of sin, resist the devil and he will flee from us.

Jesus, thank you for your grace and gift of the Holy Spirit. I yield myself to you and stand firm in my faith.

Ask God to be with the congregation in Trujillo as Liana spends some months away, that God would raise up others to take on more responsibility.
