Happy Thursday! Almost the end of the week you’ll!
In August I joined a small group from church that meets every other week for bible study. Last Friday, after a delicious Asian meal, we discussed what it meant to abide in God. We decided that aside from our daily devotional we were going to at least memorize one verse weekly. This is one area I lack in my spiritual life but, know it’s necessary. So I am up for the challenge even though I struggle to keep my girls’👭name straight lol.
I’ll probably be memorizing the scriptures I occasionally post here from my bible journaling. However the first verse I want to engrave in my heart is Romans 6:18
Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
I want to remember who I serve. As humans we have the ability to choose our actions. However if I say Jesus is my Lord, that would make him my master and I will do what he asks of me. I know I’m not perfect and will fall short at times, but he will continue to free me from my sins if I sincerely repent. I love how the NIV uses the word slave instead of servant. It may not be easy but, I’d rather be a slave to obedience than to sin. I did my share time of slaving to sin, and I felt so much despair. The funny thing is that I chose that miserable life, SMH. As I now try to serve Him, I feel so much peace and I prefer that over despair. 💕
