Keep In Step

Galatians 5:22—6:10

Sometimes it is easy to think of the work of God in the past tense. We have been forgiven. We have been set free. We have been made new. The work of God, however, is not something that happens only in the past.

Keeping in step with the Spirit suggests that the Spirit of God is not stagnant—God is on the move, doing something new. We, however, are tempted to stay where we are and fall behind the Spirit’s leading. We deceive ourselves into thinking we no longer have much to discover or much work to do in our hearts or the world around us.

The ministry of God is always in the present, right now. God continues to shape us. God continues to convict and forgive and redeem us. God continues to invite us along for a journey that leads to the fullness of life.

By consistently seeking the on-the-move Spirit of God, our eyes are opened to what God is doing now. Is God bringing certain people into our path? Is God trying to reveal a new truth to us? Where does God want to take us next?

    Also I have often thought He, in a sense, rewrites scripture for us. We will read a scripture passage and see something in it that we really needed right then. And then we say something like “As many times as I have read that passage, I have never seen that before.”
