What is your greatest challenge when it comes to leading like Jesus? Is it a difficult person, an impossible situation, a seemingly unsolvable dilemma? Perhaps we find ourselves dealing with an inability to overcome discouragement, a tendency to blame others, or other manifestations of fear and pride. Scripture urges us to die to self-interest and to live by the Spirit, experiencing God’s presence and power at work in and through our lives.
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. —Galatians 5:24-25 NLT
Prayer: God, we are Yours. Whatever challenges we face, we know that we face them united with You—Father, Son, and Spirit. Lead and empower us to face every challenge—external or internal—by Your Spirit who lives within us. This we pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
