Wednesday, June 26. Read Galatians 5:1, 13-25. As you read the sins in vv. 19-21, consider how these are like addictions. How are they like slavery?
Words from The Word: Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.
– Galatians 5:1, NIT
Audio Lectio Pray the scripture from Luke 9:57-62. Jesus says, “Follow me.”
Prayer: God of Fire, like Elisha I long for your gifts. Forgive me when I waste them on myself and give you excuses about why I can’t follow. Amen.
