Scriptures for the Day
Romans 8 1:11
1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
2 For the law of the life-giving Spirit inChrist Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death.
3 For God achieved what the law could not do because it was weakened through the flesh. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and concerning sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,
4 so that the righteous requirement of the law may be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
5 For those who live according to the flesh have their outlook shaped by the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit have their outlook shaped by the things of the Spirit.
6 For the outlook of the flesh is death, but the outlook of the Spirit is life and peace,
7 because the outlook of the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to the law of God, nor is it able to do so.
8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 You, however, are not in the flesh butin the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, this person does not belong to him.
10 But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is your life because of righteousness.
11 Moreover if the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the one who raisedChrist from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through his Spirit who lives in you.
Prayer for the Day
I thank you, Lord, for dying for my sins so that my flesh may die each day and allow your Spirit to uphold in me, so that I may claim victory over sin.
