“Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord? If to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you; for you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord” (1 Corinthians 9:1-2).
Has not the Lord chosen one who was used to speak to you? If you will not listen to them, why do you say you will listen to the Lord? Pride is what brought down Lucifer. Pride will bring down every person who lifts themselves up. Why do you cling to that which destroys when the Gospel of life is given you that You may have an abundant life? Cling to the Lord, not your pride.
Lord, I am free in you. Not free from the circumstances in this age, but free from sin, death and the devil. Help me to live in this freedom by teaching me how to live in liberty by being responsible where I am able. Guide me in the eternal way that I would flee from all immoralities and seek what is best for others and myself according to Your Word. Lead me in the way of salvation.Jesus, Your name means salvation. You have come to lead the way for as many as would follow You. Lead me now and always in the way of truth that I would not flee from You, but from all others that would tempt me to go astray. Help me now and always to see that in You alone is the hope for all ages. You have come that we may have life and have it abundantly. Help me to live the abundant life that You give. Amen.
