Good new, bad news - part 6 Keeping in Step

πŸ‘‡πŸ’₯ FULL DEVO BELOWπŸ’₯πŸ‘‡ Bad News: There is no formula for life, there is no hard an fast answer. Good news! we can walk in the wisdom of scripture, we can walk in the wisdom of our faith community, and we walk in the Spirit of grace and mercy. Jesus made a way for us by his grace and mercy, without anything We participate in one of the greatest mysteries of the Christian faith, we grow spiritually / move toward God / keep in step with the Spirit one step at a time through submission to him. Many of us want a formula to life: A + B = C Unfortunately life isn't like this. There are a lot of things that point us to the answer, but it isn't cut and dry. We walk in faith and trust; Ask the Spirit to guide us; we move forward; submit ourselves again to the Spirit; we move forward some more in faith. Embrace the mystery, embrace the journey. The Spirit is with you and will speak if you open yourself to him. REFLECT Is this mystery hard for you to accept? How often do you try to squish the spiritual life into a formula? PRAY Ask God to open your heart to his Spirit today, to walk in faith and trust and movement to his law of freedom.
