Daily Devotional
May 23
 
For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.
Romans 7:5-6
 
‘Newness of spirit’ speaks of the New Covenant, of an entirely new way of living (Jeremiah 31, Ezekiel 36). ‘No longer will I give you tables of stone,’ the Lord declares in the New Covenant, ‘but I will write My will upon the table of your heart. Every day will be an adventure. Some days I might awaken you at 4:30 to seek My face and to pray, while other times I might tell you to sleep in.’

That’s the way Christianity was meant to be.

But what have we done?

We have constructed legalistic systems and expectations both personally and corporately.

Folks, we were meant to live in a newness of the Spirit, moment by moment obeying and yielding and wondering, ‘Lord, what next?’

Throw off the yoke of legalism.
Walk in the Spirit.
Respond to His direction —

and I guarantee you will find yourself on the adventure of a lifetime!
