Receive by Faith

Paul, again speaking to the Galatians:

This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

Are you so foolish?

Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?

Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

Most Perfect and Worthy One,

How easy it is for us to try to find ways to prove our love to You.  How else can we convince ourselves that we love  You?  Yet You gently remind us that all things flow from You, not the other way around.  So, today, we desire nothing less and nothing more than to find ourselves positioned to receive from You.  Humbly and boldly (as heirs of Your inheritance) we ask You to reveal Yourself and to pour out Your Spirit on us.

Amen
