“But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.” (Romans 7:6 NKJV).


We don’t serve God by following a checklist, but by living under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Legalism does not please God as it only reveals our unrighteousness and prideful hearts. This new way of living is not about effort or earning, but believing and receiving. Those who have received the “newness of the Spirit,” have the law once inscribed in stone, now written on their hearts. This “newness” frees us to truly serve God.
PRAYER: Father, thank You for saving us through faith in Christ Jesus. Now we can serve You in a new way by living in the Spirit. We surrender afresh today. Lead, guide and direct us to join You in Your work today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
