Promise of the Spirit

Reading in Galatians 3:10-14, people of faith in Christ are promised the gift of the Spirit but those who rely on the law are under a curse. There is no way to erase past guilt by trying harder to obey the law in the present in order to be justified before God. Instead, Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming the curse for us (v. 13). In so doing, all who believe in Christ receive the promise of the Spirit.

Instead of following the Law of Moses and offering the sacrifice of animals, Jesus became that sacrifice for us so we can be connected to God. Like losing a connection to a Wi-Fi, we can sometimes have days where we just don’t feel connected with God. It makes a big difference between having a good day and a bad one.

This day with You God, the Good News for us is that Jesus is our connection to You. We are grateful today because we believe in Jesus and are automatically connected to the power of Your Spirit. You are with us always and every doubt or fear will be replaced with a deep abiding trust in You. Amen.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
