The Kitchen Table            Day 11        

Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith— 6 just as Abraham “believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”? Galatians 3:5-6

Live boldly by faith rather than badly in fear.  Our enemy would have us be intimidated but our Savior would have us be inspired.  The enemy intimidates but the Spirit inspires.  The law came to show us our faults, but the Spirit comes to show us our future.  But we have this tendency to go back to the law trying to live this life in our own strength and savvy.  This life is not living by heeding the law but by hearing the Spirit.  The blessed life is in the hands of the Spirit, not the hands of the courts.  That’s why it’s not about better obedience or worse sin.  This life is about faith that obeys the voice of the Holy Spirit, the heart of God.  Sin for us is grieving and quenching the Holy Spirit’s desires.  The law does what the law does but only the Holy Spirit can do what the Holy Spirit does.  Learn to listen and obey His voice.
