Live By the Spirit

Deep thoughts of the day and my little dog—

The goal is to become more like Him.

Are we pursuing that or are we justifying and making excuses for our behavior?

I can’t find scriptures that give me permission to continue living by my emotions and flesh…I am called to live by the Spirit.

Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Galatians 5:25 (NIV)

Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:1-2 (NIV)

Whoever claims to live in Him must live as Jesus did. 1 John 2:6 (NIV)

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 (NIV)

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)

Family, we are called higher! Let’s live according to His will, not our own, and behave like children of God.
