Mind of Christ | August 2
…for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified;
for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves,
who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them
in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.
Father, we acknowledge that simply hearing Your words and Your law is insufficient. We must do that which You command of us. Thank you for not making it difficult to know what You expect. You tell us the law is written upon our hearts.
Father, our thoughts and actions are under Your constant examination. We realize we will be without excuse if we fail to heed Your word. We admit we are weak at times and imperfect. If it was not for the power of the Holy Spirit, an unending resource, we would be in bad shape, depending upon our strength instead of Yours.
Thank You Jesus for teaching us that we never go forward in our perfection, but instead we clothe ourselves with Your cloak of righteousness, seeking to be like You, all day, every day. In the Holy name of Jesus we pray for complete fidelity to You, amen.
