Daily Devotion

26 October 

6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. 7 For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. 8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. (Romans 8:6-8, ESV)

Individuals who do not know Christ do not have the capacity to follow God’s law. Is it any surprise that man can do such horrible things? Do not be surprised at the depravity of man, but be grateful for the Spirit’s work in your life. It is God working in you that brings spiritual life and the people around you struggling with sin only needs to find Christ to be rescued from its curse.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your mercy and grace. May those around me experience the same.
