Yes, it has been some time since I last posted and I just wanted to encourage everyone to not give up in your daily Bible reading.
Galatians 5:13 "For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another."
Further on in Galatians 5:17 we read, "For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh..." and verse 18 continues, "But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law."
And finally, Galatians 5:25 says, "If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit."
Following the Holy Spirit produces His likeness in us. We will produce fruit and the flesh will be defeated. Don't ever compare yourself to your past life but look at how Christ calls us to live and strive for His perfection. Submit to His daily calling as you digest His Word and put it into action.
Be blessed my friends!
