Prayer Guide and Devotional

Galatians 5:13

For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but serve one another through love.

When we receive Jesus into our hearts and lives, so much changes about us that is not apparent right away. Wonderful things do occur such as now your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life in heaven and we now have such a large and terrific family of brothers and sisters. And, we now have the Spirit of the Living God inside of us guiding us to live better lives. What is this about “Living better lives?” When we become Christians, we now live a life of higher standards than ever before. You must remember, we are now adopted children of God and people out in the world, both Christians and non-Christians, will see how we act and listen to the words we speak. And as soon as we say or do something that may be thought of as ungodly, people will notice and question it. In the movie “The African Queen” a Christian Missionary pours the drunkard boat captains liquor into the water while he is sleeping because it interferes with his operation of the boat. As soon as he wakes and sees what she is doing he says “And you call yourself a Christian!!” Though that was just a movie, it is how the world acts. A recent article by a food service worker stated how the author’s worst group to serve is the Sunday afternoon church crowd. Bad news. He is speaking of us Christians he serves. I have seen some very questionable actions by Christians. The server is not seeing the higher standards that we are held to as Christians. The Lord reminds us we now have a great liberty or freedom due to the chains of sin being removed from us. But we are not supposed to use that new found freedom to indulge in ways of the world. Our very first thought in every moment should be to love and show love as the Lord has done to and for us!! And as high as the moon is from this earth, our standards are higher than the standards of the world. 

Lord, help me to live every second of my life in loving and honoring You. As I do this help my words and actions be pleasing to You. And though I may have freedoms due to Lord Jesus death on the cross and resurrection, I want to live my life so close to You Lord that everything I do and say is approved and inspired by You! Thank You Lord! In Jesus Name, Amen!!
