“…Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit” (Romans 7:6 NLT).


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 found the “new way” have the law once inscribed in stone, now written on their hearts. This “new way” 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.
