…Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery (Galatians 5:1 NIV).
Stand! Stand firm, even! Seems like a contradiction to last week’s thought to navigate—to move forward toward the goal. Yet, we are called to stand and become immovable in our convictions.
In the beginning of this series, we talked about the renewing of our minds, getting a fresh outlook on our lives and how God wants us to live. We moved on to endurance, strength, and optimism, while implementing loyalty to ourselves and to our Lord with clearer understanding of our constitution. We discovered most permanent and worthwhile changes take time. The importance of our task motivated us to explore the options available, which help us navigate through the obstacles we encounter along the way.
I’m sure after three months of working on our resolutions…
We’ll begin a new study on spiritual warfare. Prepare by reading and thinking about Ephesians 6:12.
See you in a twinkling,
