Living by the Spirit

Living by the Spirit

What does it mean to live by the Spirit? This is what a google search will tell us. “If we're living by the Spirit, the posture of our heart is oriented toward and in tandem with God. We aren't so concerned with what the world thinks of us — we care about pressing on toward our goal to become more like God (i.e. to love God, do what He did aka love others).” We can only keep in step with the Spirit when we surrender our earthly ways. We must have a posture in our lives that is of the Spirit and for the ways of God. This is how we live by the Spirit. In order to maintain this way of living we must be continually fortified by the only one that can strengthen us to stand up to the world.

Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

Galatians 5:25 NIV

Considerations for your planner:

  • What is the posture of your heart and life? Write it out.

A Prayer for Our Community:

God, We come to You each day to learn to be more like You. We know this is the only way that we will be able to keep in step with the Spirit. We want to live by Your ways. Help us to seek You bigger and better with each passing day. You are the reason for living. Humble us to know this and guide our hearts to a posture of serving and loving as You did. Amen.
