How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God. – Psalm 146:5
Football coaches are always concerned about turnovers. With each fumble or interception, the team quits playing offense and has to start playing defense. Unfortunately, many Christians are playing in spiritual defensive mode. They may have a clear profession of faith, but they are regressing instead of progressing.
When the church at Galatia began judging spiritual maturity by how well Christian duties were performed, Paul took them to task. He reminded them that Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law. At the point of our salvation, the Holy Spirit indwells each of us to empower us and produce fruit in our lives.
Christians must never lose sight of the power of the cross, which is also the abiding expression of God’s provision. You have the Holy Spirit’s powerful indwelling presence to help you accomplish God’s powerful kingdom agenda.
