Today's Verse : Galatians 4:19


April 19, 2012

My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth
until Christ is formed in you...
-- Galatians 4:19
What was Paul's goal for the new Christians he worked with? He
wanted them to come to full maturity in Christ (see Colossians
1:28-29). He knew the Holy Spirit would help them in this process
if they would focus their hearts on Jesus and seek to reflect
Jesus' character in their lives (2 Corinthians 3:18). So as we go
through our daily activities, let's honor his goal -- let's let
Jesus come to life in us.
Holy and Righteous God, may the presence of Jesus increase in my
attitude, behavior, and speech and may what is worldly and warped
decrease. May this be true today, but even more, dear Father, may
it be more clearly seen each day. In the name of my Savior and
goal, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
