2 Corinthians 3:4-11. Psalm 98(99):5-9. Matthew 5:17-19.
Holy is the Lord our God – Psalm 98(99):5-9.
‘Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets.’
How amazing that the Holy Spirit has been given to teach us day after day after day. Sometimes it is a Scripture verse that stands out as we read. An impulse rises within, prompting us to encourage a struggling friend or provide a meal for a sick neighbour. Maybe our conscience twitches at some point in the day, moving us to a moment of repentance. Most likely these are times when the Spirit is teaching us. As we open our hearts, the Spirit is with us, pouring out grace upon grace on our lives.
Jesus is with us, too, to forgive us when we fail. Our selfishness, anger, greed or petty fault-finding come as no surprise to him. He will forgive and teach us the path to life. Lord, give me the grace to hear your voice and follow your teaching today.
