Morning: Psalms 69:1-38; Jeremiah 22:13-23; Romans 8:12-27
Evening: Psalms 73; John 6:41-51
The prophet is clear – God does not tolerate injustice, but sweeps it away. Similarly, God does not tolerate “deeds of the flesh.” St. Paul doesn’t mean sex. By “deeds of the flesh” he means devotion to things of passing value. Whereas, the Spirit helps us live for what really matters. Jesus says that whoever eats the bread he gives will live forever. That is, when the Spirit leads your life, what you’re living for will never be swept away.
