...we will allow these words from Galatians to sear our hearts, and bridle our tongues! (James 3:2) May we also turn from the popular patterns of this world, be transformed and renew our minds in Christ!
But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another. But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. Galatians 5:15-16 ESV
Oh Lord, may we stop biting and devouring each other with our words, our actions, and motives of evil intent so that we will not destroy one another. Lord, Jesus, we can't do it in our flesh, but by Your resurrection power we are able to live by the Spirit, and we will not gratify the desires of our sinful nature. We believe You will do this in us as we yield to You. Thank You Jesus for honoring the desires of our hearts to live rightly with people and You, for Your glory, Amen and Amen!!
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - His good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 NIV
