The Center & the Sum

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
Instruct me in your paths,
Lord; make me know your way.
Teach me and make me follow you
that in your truth I'll stay.
 —Psalm 25:4-5a
Suggested tune: St. George (SM)


SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
If you are led by the Spirit, you are not subject to the law.
—Galatians 5:18 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
The Spirit is the center and the sum. He is the power of the supernatural life of true obedience and holiness.
 Andrew Murray
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
I depend on myself to be a Christian, Lord, and I reduce discipleship to a set of laws. So grant me your Spirit, and let the Spirit be my guide, that I may love you freely and view my neighbors without the blinders of rules and regulations...

 
YOUR OWN PRAYERS
Allow the above to help guide your own confession, praise, thanksgiving, and/or petition.

THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
