An Instrument of Righteousness

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law”. Galatians 5:22-23

THINK

Did you know your body is an instrument? It is an instrument of righteousness. Self-control in thought and deed should be our highest goal as believers. When we understand our value in Christ and that we are called for a higher purpose, it is a little easier to practice self-control. However, we must remember that God gives us room to grow, not room to sin.

So where is your thought-life spent? On the things of God, or things of the flesh? God’s word says in Galatians 5:24 that “those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature.” We as Christians must walk out our salvation on a daily basis, which means we die to our flesh. Submitting your mind and body to the things of God is necessary to living a righteous life.

PRAY

“Lord, be master over my mind, body and spirit. I choose to commit myself to You daily. Help me to resist the temptations of the enemy, who comes to steal, kill and destroy.”

ACT

Staying focused on God’s Word will renew your mind, so commit to reading it daily. Stay accountable to someone you trust. Also, spread the word about how your friends can download the free FC app that provides these free daily devotionals.
