Day 35 // May 20
“Though believers still have this indwelling propensity to sin, the Holy Spirit maintains within us a prevailing desire for holiness.” Jerry Bridges
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another (Galatians 5:22-26).
Let’s pray this together:
Holy Spirit, help us to live a life of holiness and righteousness before You, our God. Today, we choose to walk completely in the Spirit and to crucify our flesh. Help us not to become conceited in any way. We don’t want to provoke each other. And show us where we may be harboring envy in our hearts. We put those things off today, in Jesus’ name. We deeply desire for You to help us live a life of holiness before You and others moment by moment, for honoring and glorifying Your name is our first priority in all we do and say. Amen!
